She revealed the pay structure for top taxmen in reply to a question in the Commons from Tory MP James Gray, but declined to give actual figures for individual commissioners.

Primarolo said the performance element of their remuneration ranged from just £300 to £400 three years ago and had risen rapidly since to a maximum of 4.23% in 2002/2003 and 10.2% in the current 2003/2004 year.

The commissioners’ base pay itself can contain a percentage element of up to nine or 10%.
