asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what salaries will be payable to the chairman of the proposed urban development corporations.

The salary for the London chairman will be £12,000 per annum, and for the Merseyside chairman £9,000 per annum. These salaries are calculated with reference to national scales appropriate to public appointments of this nature and take account of the fact that both chairmen will, in fact, be working for two days a week. Now that the House has agreed the Second Reading of the Local Government, Planning and Land (No. 2) Bill, the salaries and other shadow UDC expenses will be met from my Department's Administratioin Vote.
