Ministers push through 29 per cent pay rise for the information watchdog, amid fears that Facebook and Google might poach her

Ministers push through 29 per cent pay rise for the information watchdog, amid fears that Facebook and Google might poach herPanicking ministers have pushed through a 29 per cent pay rise for the information watchdog, amid fears that Facebook and Google might try and poach her. The Government has quietly approved the extraordinary salary increase for Elizabeth Denham, which takes her pay to £180,000 – an increase of more than ten times inflation. The pay rise, which comes into force today, makes her one of the few public officials paid more than the Prime Minister Theresa May, who receives £152,819. Presenting the case for Ms Denham’s salary increase, Margot James, minister at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), told a Commons committee in March: “The regulator must be able to keep up with the organisations it regulates, some of which—Google and Facebook, for example—have seemingly limitless reserves.” Ms Denham took up her role as Information Commissioner less than two years ago. Until now, she has been paid £140,000, the same as her predecessor, Christopher Graham. Ms James admitted the pay rise far outstripped “annual permissible public sector increases.” Even if the Commissioner’s salary had been increased in line with other public sector rises over the past 10 years from £140,000, it would be £154,000 today, Ms James said. How to take back your privacy on Facebook “It is a global recruitment market, and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have Elizabeth Denham in the role,” she said. Ms Denham has been criticised for her slow approach to investigating the data breaches by Cambridge Analytica and Facebook. It took five days for the Commissioner to obtain a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica’s London offices and computers. The delay prompted concerns the company, which is at the heart of the Facebook privacy scandal, had time to remove key information. The Commissioner seemed further hamstrung in its review of AggregateIQ, another data company which reportedly played a role in the Vote Leave campaign to exit the European Union, and which has also been caught up in the uproar surrounding Cambridge Analytica. “AggregateIQ has not been especially cooperative with our investigation,” Ms Denham said last week. On top of her 29 per cent rise, the Commissioner will also have a 1 per cent pay boost each year – taking her to salary to more than £185,000 at the end of her five-year term. Today’s pay rise includes £20,000 which is specifically intended specifically Ms Denham. Her successor’s salary will not include this extra £20,000, as it is “only for the current incumbent; it is attached to the individual, rather than the role,” Ms James said. Kevin Brennan, the shadow minister for DCMS, questioned this “unusual proposal” for the additional £20,000, as well as the reason why the Commissioner should be paid more than Ms May. Ms James told the committee that “data is at the forefront of the political agenda” and that “the digital revolution has turned data into the new oil.” Ms Denham had previously worked as the Commissioner at the Office of Information in British Columbia, Canada and received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her work. In her new role, she has overseen the issuing of the ICO’s largest fine, a £400,000 penalty to Talk Talk after the telecommunications company failed to protect its customers’ data from a cyber attack. The Information Commissioner’s pay is set by the Government. The salary rise was debated in a Commons committee earlier this month – days before the news broke of Facebook’s data breach, which affected 50 million accounts. The watchdog’s role is a five-year appointment, which is approved by DCMS and then by the Queen. Responsibilities of the role include overseeing data protection and Freedom of Information requests. Last month, MPs were granted a 1.8 per cent pay rise, above the 1 per cent cap imposed on public sector salaries. From today, the basic salary paid to MPs increases by more than £1,300 to £77,379.
