Bunhill: Topping the City Bill
Sunday 10 April 1994
This is a shame. What with IRA bomb threats and the ring of steel around the City, a few reassuring words would not have gone amiss from the top boy in blue.
But minions at the City police HQ in Old Jewry assure me that Taylor, a boyish 47-year- old who is fond of horseriding and hill walking, is as bright as a button. 'He's very quick, well clued up,' said one.
The jobs has its perks as well as reponsibilities, of course. And given the importance of the job, and the fact that it is taxpayers' money, perhaps everyone should know them: a salary of pounds 74,000; an unmarked police car (a Jaguar) with driver; a free flat in the City; a company truncheon; a budget of pounds 26m; an a staff of 792 uniformed officers plus 300 civilians.
When Commissioner Taylor has got his size elevens well and truly under the table, he will visit City institutions for chats on security.
A visit to Eddie George at the Bank of England is also in prospect.
