Senior Salaries Review Body (Triennial Review)

I am today announcing the start of the triennial review of the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB). Triennial reviews of non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) are part of the Government’s commitment to ensuring, and improving, the accountability and effectiveness of public bodies.

The SSRB provides independent advice to the Prime Minister, the Lord Chancellor, the Secretary of State for Defence, the Secretary of State for Health and the Home Secretary on the pay of senior civil servants, the judiciary, senior officers of the armed forces, very senior managers in the NHS and police and crime commissioners.

The review will be conducted in accordance with Government guidance for reviewing NDPBs, and will focus on the core questions of effectiveness and good governance. Interested parties will be invited to feed in their views.

I shall announce the findings of the review in due course.
