HC Deb 28 July 1938 vol 338 c3296
53. Mr. J. J. Davidson

asked the Minister of Health what remuneration or expenses are paid to the chairmen of the Lee Conservancy Board, the Lee Conservancy Catchment Board, and the Metropolitan Water Board; and what are the names of the persons who hold these offices?

Mr. Elliot

The Metropolitan Water Board have not exercised their statutory powers of paying a salary as such to their chairman. The Lee Conservancy Board and the Lee Conservancy Catchment Board respectively pay their chairman £100 and £500 per annum. The Metropolitan Water Board and the Lee Conservancy Board have for many years past made allowances to the chairman for the time being for hospitality and other expenses incidental to the post, the normal rate of allowance being £500 and £400 per annum respectively. Sir William Prescott, Bt., is the present chairman of each of these boards.

Mr. Davidson

Does the reply indicate that one person holds the three positions?

Mr. Elliot

Yes, Sir.
