Question to the HM Treasury:
To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the number of exit payments for public sector workers which have exceeded £95,000 since the Enterprise Act 2016 came into force.
Answered by Elizabeth Truss - Minister for Women and Equalities
Figures published in the Whole of Government Accounts show that during the period of April 2015 to March 2016 there were 1,787 exits paid at over £100,000, costing £0.2bn. There were 5,439 exit payments paid at between £50,000 and £100,000 costing £0.3bn, of which a portion may have been more than £95,000. The Whole of Government Accounts figures for the period since the Enterprise Act 2016 came into force, on May 4 2016, are not yet available and no separate estimate has been made.
