"We will resist the calls that have been made for direct regulation of executive pay," Ms Ussher will say in her speech. "Of course, remuneration packages should be strongly linked to effective performance, and incentives should be aligned with the long-term interests of the business and shareholders, and we don't support rewards for failure."
But she adds: "I'm clear that executive pay is a matter for boards and shareholders, not for governments and regulators."

Sorry to be all obsessive, but I was very disappointed by this speech last summer. But just look how far behind it has been left by events.
