§ Mr. Weetch
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will list the directors of the Anglia building society and the London and South of England building society, their ages and occupations and the method by which they became directors, through co-option or otherwise.
§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
In the case of the Anglia building society, I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on 21 may 1982 to my hon. Friend the Member for Hornchurch (Mr. Squire).
In the case of the London and South of England building society, the latest annual return gave the following information about the members of the hoard on 4 April 1981:
Name Address Year of birth Geoffrey G. Rodgers (Chairman) Foxgrove House, Windmill Lane, Hollingsbourne, Kent, ME17 1TR 1912 R. G. Weston (Deputy Chairman) 39, Cropthorne Court, Maida Vale, London, W9 1TA 1916 B. Christian Briant 1, Kennington Park Place, London, SE11 4AS 1917 V. R. Moll Greenfields, 75, Switchback Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 7QF 1912 A. H. P. Gillett 51, Park View Road, Ealing, London, W5 2JF 1930
Name Address Year of birth M. K. Holloway Whiteslea, Nursery Road, Walton-on-the-Hill, Tadworth, Surrey, KT20 7TW 1927 W. B. Horsburgh 146, Grove Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 2DF 1921 A. G. Stoughton-Harris Southdown, Shepherds Lane, Hurley, Berkshire, SL6 5NG 1932 J. R. Thomas Drovers, Hawthorne Road, Bickley, Kent, BR1 2HN 1927
No change in the membership of the board has been notified to the registry since 4 April 1981.
At the time of submission of the society's last annual return, it was not required that details of directors' occupations should be included.
The answer to the last part of the question is not readily available, since building societies are not required to provide this information to the registry.
