asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the salary, expenses, and pension arrangements available to part-time members of the British Waterways Board; and list all benefits in kind which they may receive.

All members of the British Waterways Board are part-time. Their remuneration is listed each year in the Board' annual report and accounts, which are laid before this House. Actual travelling and related expenses incurred by members whilst engaged on the Board's business are reimbursed. Only the Chairman' appointment is at present pensionable, on arrangements similar to those provided by the Rules of the British Waterways (Salaried Staff) Pension Fund.I am not aware of any provision of benefits in kind.
