The Metropolitan Police Service issued Practice Advice in September 2005 to provide "Guidance on Setting Up and Maintaining Neighbourhood Panels". It is noted in the guidance that " The panel should be a mixed group of men and women of various ages and be drawn from all parts of the neighbourhood to prevent focus on one area at the exclusion of others. Representation should be sought from significant race or faith groups in the area and people from different sections of the community i.e. those living in private dwellings and people from social housing. Consideration should also be given to the panel having a representative from any group forming a large section of the community such as students, young people, lesbians or gay men."

How many of the following people have been appointed to panels:

A) Islamic faith communities B) Christian faith communities C) Jewish faith communities D) Hindu faith communities E) Buddhist faith communities F) Students G) Young people H) Lesbians and gay men I) Social housing residents J) People with disabilities?
