The Revenue's COO earned £240,900 in 2006-07, according to a new study

Steve Lamey was HMRC's highest-paid executive during the 2006-07 financial year, according to new figures from The Taxpayers' Alliance.

The pressure group's second annual survey of private sector salaries shows that the Revenue's former chief information officer (now COO) earned £240,900 - a decrease of 5.2% on the previous 12 months (but still higher than the average salary of earners including in the study).

New HMRC chairman Paul Gray, however, enjoyed a rise of 6.4% to £198,900, placing him in The Taxpayers' Alliance run-down above his predecessor, Sir David Varney (£184,000), chief financial officer Stuart Cruickshank (£175,000), director of communications and marketing Chris Hopson (£155,000), and directors general Mike Eland and Dave Hartnett (both £150,000).
