I have been asked to reply on behalf of Cabinet Office.

Appointments to Government departmental boards are guided by the principles set out in the joint HM Treasury and Cabinet Office document ‘Corporate governance in central Government Departments: Code of good practice’ which was published in July 2011, and requires Departments to pay due attention to diversity.
