HL Deb 29 November 1990 vol 523 c49WA
Lord Brougham and Vaux

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When the reappointments of the members of the London Residuary Body will be announced.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment (Baroness Blatch)

The following have been reappointed to the London Residuary Body for the period 1st January 1991–31st March 1993, or until the dissolution of the body, whichever is sooner:

Members: Councillor Sir Peter Bowness, CBE, DL

  • J. Esling
  • W. Mackenzie, OBE
  • M. C. Roberts
  • J. Wolkind, CBE

The London Residuary Body has completed the bulk of its ex-GLC tasks and has already distributed £486 million in capital receipts and £184 million in revenue balances for the benefit of London's chargepayers.

The reappointments reflect the confidence of my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for the Environment in the board's ability to discharge the new tasks which the Residuary Body assumed on 1st April 1990 on the abolition of ILEA.
