§ Mr. Jopling
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much time the last Chairman of the Horserace Betting Levy Board devoted to these duties; how much time the next one will devote to them; and when he intends to announce the salary of the new one.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
The last Chairman of the Board spent up to four days a week on these duties. The new Chairman intends to spend rather more. I have approved a recommendation of the Board that he should be paid a salary of £4,800 a year.
