HMRC Spending over £1 Million Per Year on ‘Diversity Officers’
HMRC - The very people responsible for taxing the British public have reportedly been using the hard-earned cash of workers to employ woke diversity officers to the tune of over £3 million from since 2019 alone.
According to a Freedom of Information (FoI) request reported by the Westminster political blog Guido Fawkes, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs is spending £1,019,534 per year to employ 16 full-time diversity tsars.
The site noted, however, that the FoI request reveals that the 16 are not alone in performing ‘diversity’ roles within the tax-collecting agency, with others taking on such roles in addition to their “regular duties”.
The report claimed that out of the 16 full-time diversity employees, one is earning a Grade 6 salary, which can mean up to £80,384 per year in London, while five others are on Grade 7 salaries, which can reach £66,712.
The FoI request also revealed that the HMRC has its own ‘Race Delivery Programme’, which has a budget of £1.5 million for the 2022-23 reporting period, with “16.87 full-time equivalent staff”.
