§ Mr. Fishburn
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the reappointments of the members of the London residuary body.
§ Mr. Key
The following have been reappointed to the London residuary body for the period 1 January 1991 to 31 March 1993 or until the dissolution of the body, whichever is sooner:
- 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 my right hon. Friend's confidence in the board's ability to discharge the new tasks which the residuary body assumed on 1 April 1990 on the abolition of ILEA.
