Pay for top-level employees in the UK public sector increased by 9.5% last year, according to a new report from analysts Incomes Data Services.
It looked at the earnings of executives and directors in public sector bodies, agencies and authorities.

The average salary of a top boss in a public body was £169,000, while the pay of most chief executives in local government topped £100,000.

Royal Mail chief executive Adam Crozier led the 2004 pay table, at £814,244.

Other big earners in public bodies in 2004 included John Tiner, the chief executive at the Financial Services Authority, with a salary of £471,656.

The public sector often likes to follow the private sector's lead

Pay for the top executives at government agencies range from £167,500 at Ordnance Survey to £67,500 at the Public Records Office.

In local government, the earnings of most chief executives surveyed passed the £100,000- a-year mark, whereas 12 months earlier almost 60% had earnings below six figures.

That's not much for a top exec. A good private sector CEO would consider that a lousy bonus. An investment banker would probably consider that a month's bonus.
