A senior Conservative MP has criticised the reported tax bill benefits enjoyed by senior civil servants in Whitehall.
– Richard Bacon, Tory member of the Commons Public Accounts Committee
Most taxpayers would be surprised to find that this sort of thing is tax-free. These are out of line with what one would expect from the way people in the private sector are treated
Taxpayers are already paying a lot for these people, I don't think they would be expecting to dig into their pocket to pay for the tax on the benefit as well.
