The Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change, Stewart Stevenson, today announced the re-appointment of Duncan Sutherland to the British Waterways Board.

Mr Sutherland has worked for Lancashire County Council as Head of Tourism and Leisure Development; English Tourist Board as Head of Implementation; Inner City Enterprises PLC as Director; Coventry City Council as Director of City Development; the EDI Group Ltd, as Chief Executive and is currently Managing Director of Inpartnership Ltd.

Mr Sutherland was first appointed to the British Waterways Board in 2006. This re-appointment will be for 3 years and will run from September 25, 2009 to September 24, 2012.

This post is part-time and attracts remuneration of £13,030 per annum, with an additional annual fee of £1,000 payable if appointed to serve on the BW Scotland Group or for the Remuneration, Pensions, Fair Trading, Audit or Property Committees, plus an additional £1,500 for acting as Chair of the BW Scotland Group or one of those Committees. The time commitment is agreed annually with the Chairman of the Board.

British Waterways is a cross border public corporation which runs its affairs on a commercial basis consistent with its statutory powers and its objectives agreed by the Government. It promotes the use of its waterways for leisure, recreation, tourism, regeneration and transport while also conserving the waterways' natural and built heritage. Two members of the Board are appointed by Scottish Ministers.

This Ministerial public appointment was made in accordance with the Office of the Commissioner for Public Appointments Code of Practice.

All appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process. However, in accordance with the original Nolan recommendations, there is a requirement for appointees' political activity (if there is any to be declared) to be made public. Mr Sutherland has not declared any political activity.
