The Civil Service already discloses a significant amount of senior pay data. In the annual release of Civil Service Statistics the Office for National Statistics publishes a range of detailed pay information, including: numbers of staff by responsibility level and gender, median and mean salaries by gender, gender pay gap data, the number of staff earning over £100,000 and other pay information. The latest release is available at:

In addition, since 2010 the Government has published an annual list of individuals in departments, agencies and Non-departmental Public Bodies earning £150,000 and above. Departments also publish organograms every six months that include individualised salary information for their most senior staff.
