Dear London School of Economics,

I understand that Paul Myners, the Chair of LSE's Council, began his role on 1 February 2015. I was hoping you could tell me the following information

1. If a recruitment agency was used to facilitate or assist in the search for candidates for the role of Chair of LSE Council
2. What were the costs to LSE of any recruitment agency to facilitate or assist in this search?

3. Until 10 February 2016, did Paul Myners receive any payments from LSE?
4. If so, what were these for?
5. The date, purpose and amount of all expense claims submitted by Paul Myners or in relation to his duties at LSE

6. Does Paul Myners receive a financial contribution from LSE in relation to running his office or staff? If so, how much is this contribution?
7. Does Paul Myners receive any non-financial support from LSE? This could be access to an LSE email account

Thank you for your help

Yours,

Sarah
