Following comments made by Susan Jebb, head of the Food Standard Agency, suggesting that bringing cake into the office should be seen in the same light as indoor smoking, we revealed Ms Jebb's handsome pay packet. Turns out that she receives £70,000 per annum for just 2.5-3 days per week of work.
Speaking to The Spectator, which published the findings, our investigations campaign manager, Elliot Keck, said:
"Professor Susan Jebb’s comments really take the biscuit.
"The FSA exists to ensure the safety of our food, not to act as a platform for nanny state lectures.
"Ministers should remind the quango to focus on their core responsibilities."
