Head Of The Fees Office Gets 8% Pay Rise

Recommended Posts

The House of Commons has awarded significant pay rises to its senior officials, including some of those who oversaw the MPs' expenses scandal.

Annual accounts just released show that the Clerk to the House, Malcolm Jack, received a rise of about 11%, meaning he now earns more than Gordon Brown.

Andrew Walker, who ran the Fees Office which administered expenses, received a rise of about 8%.

His salary rose from a band of £115,000 - £120,000 to £125,000 - £130,000.

The BBC's political correspondent Carole Walker said Mr Jack was the most senior official overseeing the running of the House of Commons.

His salary rose from a pay band of £170,000 - £175,000 to £190,000 - £195,000. He also received an increase in benefits in kind from £20,000 to £25,000.

The increases were reportedly approved by a senior pay panel, but they come at a time when others in the public sector are seeing their annual salary rises restricted to about 2%.

Our correspondent said it was unclear whether the rises were agreed under the previous Commons speaker Michael Martin, who stepped down following the expenses row, or had been voted upon more recently, since officials vowed to clean up the system.

During the scandal over expenses, some MPs accused officials in the Fees Office of encouraging them to maximise their claims

No active disregard of British Values here then.

Andrew Walker, who ran the Fees Office which administered expenses, received a rise of about 8%.

He runs the Fee's Office despite not having any formal accountancy skills. Not many accountants get £125,000 - £130,000!

Andrew Walker, who runs the Commons Fees Office which deals with MPs' wages and allowances, was considered a 'crony' when he was put in charge of the department despite having no accountancy qualification.

Like the banksta's, no lessons being learned, treating the public like mugs.
