Using a sample of 220 large publicly held British companies, this study examines the role of the remuneration committee in British boardrooms. Some 30 per cent of the sample reported having such a committee. A reported remuneration committee seemed to be associated with higher levels of pay and made no positive impact on the incentive structure of pay.
