---------------------------------------------------------------------- Yugoslav refugees grant - chief officers' remuneration ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Only Aylesbury Vale, Rochford and Uttlesford DCs exceeded the qualifying threshold for Yugoslav displaced persons grant in 1992-93, junior DoE minister Robin Squire said. The formula for paying grant for refugees from the former Yugoslavia is the same as would apply under the Bellwin scheme of assistance for emergencies. Councils were invited to submit estimates of the expenditure they had incurred or expected to incur in 1992-93 and only these three districts were above their threshold. Uttlesford DC had spent £58,000 above its £14,000 threshold. (Written answer 17 February cols 248-250)

Sir John Wheeler MP asked if the secretary of state for the environment would require each local authority to publish annually the remuneration paid to its chief executive and chief officers. Local Government Minister John Redwood said: 'There is a strong case for local authorities to publish details of the pay of their senior staff in broadly the same way as companies are required to publish details of the pay of their senior employees. However, I am also keen to keep new obligations on local authorities under control'. Mr Redwood said the DoE would be considering the issue but no new requirements would be introduced without consultation with the local authority associations.
