Annual accounts published by the ODA show that Lemley was paid £165,000 for working part-time for six months last year, plus £58,000 in expenses. He was paid an extra £388,000 when he resigned in a “negotiated departure” last year.

The disclosure of Lemley’s payoff comes amid continued concerns over the Olympic budget, which was the subject of an NAO report issued today.
