£750k to be spent on Development Corporation wages (and that’s after they have left!)

THURROCK MP, JACKIE Doyle-Price rose on the floor of the House to ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what provision his Department has made for the payment of salaries paid by Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation after 31 March 2012.

Bob Neill (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government; Bromley and Chislehurst, Conservative) replied:

“The running costs budget for the Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Commission to cover final winding-up activity in 2012-13 is £760,000. This includes provision for payment of salaries after 31 March 2012.”
