In relation to salaries, please see the below link for the information published on our website:

In terms of the combined salary, we can only provide information in financial years (April- March), rather than in calendar years (January- December). The final figure for April 2021- March 2022 for all staff salaries (including the OPFCC), was £37,650,000.
