Information Commissioner (Remuneration)
Motion made and Question put forthwith (Standing Order No. 118(6) and Order of 25 May),
That, from 1 November 2021—
(1)the Information Commissioner shall be paid a salary of £200,000 per annum and pension benefits in accordance with the standard award for the civil service pension scheme;
(2)all previous resolutions relating to the salary and pension of the Information Commissioner shall cease to have effect.—(Tom Pursglove.)
The Information Commissioner is doing a lousy job and £200,000 is far too much.
The Deputy Speaker’s opinion as to the decision of the Question being challenged, the Division was deferred until Wednesday 9 June (Standing Order No. 41A).
That John Howell be discharged from the Justice Committee and Laura Farris be added.—(Mike Freer, on behalf of the Committee of Selection.)
Women and Equalities Committee
That Ben Bradley and Peter Gibson be discharged from the Women and Equalities Committee and Lee Anderson and Philip Davies be added.—(Mike Freer, on behalf of the Committee of Selection.)
