Non-executive Directors' remuneration

Non-executive Directors are appointed by the full Board following recommendations from the Nomination Committee.

The Chairman's remuneration falls within the remit of the RemCo and is approved by the Board. The Board determines the terms on which the services of other non-executive Directors are provided.

All non-executive Directors are appointed for a term of three years. In accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code, all Directors submit themselves for re-election each year at the AGM.

The non-executive Directors are not eligible to join any pension scheme operated by the Company and cannot participate in any of the Company's annual or long-term incentive arrangements.

None of the appointment letters for non-executive Directors contain provision for specific payment in the event of termination for whatever cause.

Further details of the non-executive Directors remuneration can be found in the remuneration report 2015. These include dates of appointment and fees.
