To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the (a) terms of conditions, (b) remuneration and (c) hours of work are for the panel members of the Rail Review Panel.
The Department has used its standard terms and conditions of public appointment, which do not prescribe a set working hours limit. The obligation for the members is to assist the Chair, Keith Williams, to fulfil the terms of reference that were announced by the Secretary of State for Transport on 11th October 2018. Members of the panel will agree with the Chair the necessary time commitment to do this; this may vary across Members and during different stages of the Review. None of the members will be remunerated for their work.
