This is a matter for the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). Andrew Hall, Acting Chief Executive of QCA, has written to the hon. Member and a copy of his reply has been placed in the House Libraries.
Letter from Andrew Hall, dated 23 April 2009:
The Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families has asked the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) to respond to your question concerning the remuneration Dr. Ken Boston will receive between the date of his suspension from the QCA and 11 June 2009.
I can confirm that the QCA expects to pay Dr. Ken Boston approximately £180,000 in that period, which brings his contract with the QCA to an end. This payment includes contractual entitlements only. No special severance payments will be made to Dr. Boston, except in so far as he will not be required to work out his full period of notice to 11 June 2009. Similarly, no performance bonus for this latest period nor any pension enhancement will be paid.
