Mr. Dykes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the current full salary and total expenses, allowances and other emoluments and payments in kind of the chairman and all other board members, and the three senior non-board officials of the London residuary body.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

The current salaries of the chairman and board members of the London residuary body are as follows:

£ per annum1
Chairman (full-time appointment):
Sir Godfrey Taylor 56,320
Members (part-time appointments):
Mr. Alan Blakemore, CBE 13,608

Mr. Jack Wolkind, CBE
Mr. Wallace Mackenzie, OBE 17,010
Mr. Michael Roberts 20,412
Councillor Sir Peter Bowness, CBE 6,804
1 From 1 April 1988.

Remuneration is subject to abatement, if applicable, in respect of public sector pension received.

Information on the total expenses paid to the chairman and board members during 1986–87 is contained in the residuary body's annual report and accounts for that financial year, which were laid before Parliament on 27 January. No emoluments were paid otherwise than in cash. The salaries and expenses of officials are a matter for the LRB. The 1986–87 report and accounts indicate that the emoluments for that year of the three most senior officials were in the range £35,000 to £40,000.

Mr. Dykes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will estimate the amount of office space required by the London residuary body for its work between 1988 and 1990, and from 1990 onwards; and which locations have been selected provisionally or finally for these activities.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

The London residuary body's requirements for office space in connection with winding up the affairs of the Greater London council will reduce progressively from its present floor space needs of about 30,000 sq m as its functions diminish before 31 March 1990. Accommodation in connection with winding up the residual affairs of the Inner London education authority will depend upon the number and complexity of the functions it may have to undertake.
