Graham England: director of housing during the period investigated by the auditor. After the provisional findings were announced in January 1994, Mr England was transferred to the chief executive's department. He was appointed head of external relations in April last year. Mr England was at his desk in the council offices yesterday. He made no comment.

Paul Hayler: assistant director of housing policy during the period investigated by John Magill. After the provisional report in 1994, he was transferred, like Mr England, to the chief executive's department. According to Westminster council yesterday he is currently "carrying out economic enabling work" within the external relations division. He was not at work yesterday.

Peter Hartley: chairman of the environment committee on Westminster City Council between 1983 and 1987. He was then on the housing committee from 1987 to 1988. He became chairman of the financial management and personnel sub-committee between 1987 and 1990. He resigned as a councillor in February 1991.

Bill Phillips. As the former managing director Westminster City Council, he was a key player in forming the designated sales policy. He joined the council in July 1986 and left in February 1991. He now works as a management consultant for a private sector firm. Mr Phillips said yesterday that Mr Magill had written about him in "extreme and biased" terms.
