The Higgs Review

The Higgs Review reported on the role and effectiveness of non-executive directors, supporting the substance of the Combined Code while making some further recommendations. These recommendations included stating the number of meetings of the board and its main committees in the annual report, an explanation from the board to inform shareholders as to why they believe a certain individual should be appointed to a non-executive directorship. There should be a comprehensive induction programme for new non-executive directors
