Baker Tilly partner Theresa Graham is widely tipped to be among those named as members of the committee – which will be launched to oversee the financial activities of the SBS.
Graham is understood to have been appointed to a part-time role.
She is an opponent of red tape and is likely to scrutinise government activity in this area, led by Cabinet Office minister Mo Mowlam, pictured visiting Pentonville prison this week.
The 19 members of the Small Business Council – employed to support chairman William Sargent – were unveiled in May.
The chancellor this week announced the SBS’s #200m a year budget would be raised to #277m by 2004.
He said new functions would also be added to the agency. He added: ‘A new internet service and consultancy service for start-ups will be launched to support enterprise for all’.
A three-year programme was also announced to ensure the government met its target of having all services online by 2005.
