I have been asked to reply.
Individual pay decisions are made by individual public sector bodies and Departments so this information is not held centrally. The Office for National Statistics collects the annual salaries of civil servants, as part of the Annual Civil Service Employment Survey (ACSES) and I refer the right hon. Member to the answer given to him on
Following the 2009 pre-Budget report, all public sector bodies subject to direct ministerial control will be required to publish the salary, including benefits in kind and the level of any bonus, of named individuals paid more than £150,000 to the nearest £5,000 and the number of staff paid more than £50,000 in £5,000 increments. The Government will expect other public bodies to comply with this level of disclosure.
