Non-Executive Directors are paid a fee rather than a salary and this information, together with the salaries of Executive Directors, is disclosed in the Annual Report and Accounts available at https://www.hs2.org.uk/documents/collections/hs2-ltd-corporate-reports/. Non-Executive Board members are required to work an average of two days per calendar month as per their Terms and Conditions of Appointment and receive a fee of £950 per day. Additional days worked are remunerated at the same daily rate upon presentation of days worked. Therefore we do not record hours. The Non-Executive Chairman receives an annual rate of £200,000 on the expectation of an average time commitment of 2.5 days per week.
