HMRC's CIO pockets big pay rise

Chief information officer Steve Lamey pockets a 25% pay rise

HM Revenue & Customs chief information officer Steve Lamey has pocketed a
25% pay rise, despite holding the reins during a mixed time for the department,
as far as IT performance is concerned.

Lamey received salary and benefits of nearly £260,000 in 2005-2006, compared
to nearly £105,000 in the six months he worked in 2004-2005.

During his tenure HMRC has suffered problems with handling false tax credits
claims, issuing incorrect penalties to businesses and tax credits overpayments.
However, the robustness of both self-assessment and PAYE online filing has
improved during that time.

An HMRC spokesman said in The Telegraph that the department had
dramatically improved its IT performance and delivery to customers during that
period.
