Charity bosses, including abortion providers, are receiving huge salaries partly funded by the taxpayer.

Heads of charities, including abortion providers Marie Stopes and International Planned Parenthood, are receiving six-figure salaries and huge bonuses, according to an investigation by the Daily Mail.

The newspaper has looked into several major charities which receive millions in British foreign aid. Some of them are paying their chiefs up to £618,000 a year, as well as increasing spending on senior staff.

Marie Stopes

Marie Stopes International, which receives £46.3 million in British aid, paid its chief executive Simon Cooke £168,924 last year, as well as a £251,831 bonus. This is despite the abortion giant being forced to suspend services earlier this year after a Care Quality Commission report found evidence of illegal practices. The organisation also lists 22 staff with six figure basic salaries.


The International Planned Parenthood Federation, which was given £25.8 million in 2013, gave its director Carmen Barroso £344,396 last year, and has at least 14 staff who are paid more than £100,000. The group’s top officials, unlike most non-profit organisations, are also allowed to take business class flights.

Among the other charities singled out for paying excessive salaries is Save the Children, which promotes abortion and family planning.

“Excessive” salaries

Pauline Latham MP, a member of the International Development Committee, said she would be demanding an urgent inquiry into “excessive” salary packages. “The public will be very concerned. These are not normal salaries – even some big businesses do not pay these kinds of amounts.”

Priti Patel, the Development Secretary, has frozen discussion of new aid deals while she urgently reviews ethics, relationships and tax dodging within the international development industry.
