asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he has agreed to pay a salary increase in retrospect to the acting Chairman of the Horserace Betting Levy Board; how much this increase will be; how many such increases have been made at the stated periods since this Chairman was appointed; and whether he will make a statement.
