HMRC top earners list published in transparency drive

HMRC has published a list of its top earners as part of a government
transparency drive.

The tax collectors have published the salaries of its most senior people
alongside other government departments and agencies.

Steve Lamey, director general of benefits and credits, is the highest earner
in terms of base pay with a minimum salary of £205,000.

Other big earners included FD Simon Bowles (£185,000), information chief Phil
Pavitt (£180,000) Mike Falve, director general for people (£175,000) and chief
executive Lesley Strathie (£170,000).

HMRC said: “Greater transparency is at the heart of the government’s
commitment to enable the public to hold politicians and public bodies to
account, reduce the deficit and deliver better value for money in public
spending, and also realise significant economic benefits by enabling the
development of applications and websites using public data.”
