Restoring public confidence in HMRC
Sunderland-born Clasper apparently took a pay cut for the HMRC role, earning £150,000 for a three-day week. Part of his brief was to rebuild public confidence in an organisation rocked by the major security breach of a loss of a copy of the full child benefit database, which had led to the resignation of his predecessor Paul Gray.
