Mr. Harry Barnes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the performance targets set for the chairman of the Severn-Trent water authority in 1987–88; and if he will specify the annual bonus received by the chairman in each of the last four years.

Mr. Moynihan

Information about Government controls on the Severn-Trent water authority, including performance aims and achievement against them, is set out in the authority's report and accounts for 1987–88 on pages 60 and 61. A copy is available in the Library.

Water authority chairmen and executive board members were first eligible for performance bonuses in respect of 1986–87. The chairman of the Severn-Trent water authority received a bonus of 7.5 per cent. of his annual salary for that year and 9 per cent. for 1987–88.
