§ Mr. Dell
An analysis by the Board of Trade of the accounts for years ending on or after 27th January, 1968 of 155 large companies shows that, of their 1,075 directors, one had emoluments exceeding £30,000 and fifteen were in the range £20,000 to £30,000. The last part of the Question cannot be answered from the information now published under the Act.
