Six-figure salaries of quango bosses published.

Summary: The six-figure salaries of more than 150 bosses of taxpayer-supported quangos were published today.

The six-figure salaries of more than 150 bosses of taxpayer-supported quangos were published today in the latest part of a Government transparency drive.

Pay packages for every employee of non-departmental public bodies earning over Au150,000 have been put online by the Cabinet Office.

The highest sum listed was the Au394,999 paid to Olympic Delivery Authority chief executive David Higgins - despite fears of a possible squeeze on the budget for the London 2012 Games.

And he was only one of eight senior figures at the London 2012 body earning in excess of Au200,000 a year, according to the list.

Among other sizeable deals enjoyed by the 156 employees named was Au369,999 for Tony Fountain, chief executive of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

And that excluded a Au70,810 allowance in lieu of pension or Au91,000 "assistance with relocation costs", the Cabinet Office data showed.
