Remuneration committee
The remuneration committee is responsible for determining the contract terms, remuneration and other benefits for executive directors, including performance-related bonus schemes. The committee comprises A M Pendlebury and, pending the appointment of a new independent director, S L Dye. It is chaired by A M Pendlebury. However, neither A M Pendlebury nor S L Dye are involved in determining their own remuneration. No members of the remuneration committee are involved in determining their own remuneration. There are plans to evolve the Company’s governance structure so that the remuneration committee has an independent chair.

The whole Board considers matters of nomination and succession and thus there is no requirement for a nomination committee currently.

Audit committee
The audit committee comprises solely A M Pendlebury pending the appointment of a new independent director. It is chaired by A M Pendlebury. The committee meets as necessary to monitor the Group’s internal control systems and major accounting and audit related issues.
