Pay public officers first
MPS AND SENATORS are expected to get a ten per cent increase in salaries and allowances, but the Opposition says it wants none of it unless public officers get their own long-deferred wage hike
The disclosure was made in the House of Assembly yesterday by Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley during a marathon five and a half hour introduction of a motion of no confidence in the Government.
Mottley said a Minister’s salary would now go back up by almost $18 000 a year plus entertainment and travel allowances which would add another $6 500, effectively making the increase $25 000 annually.
She referred to two resolutions, notice of which had been given on Friday, April 29 by Leader of the House, Health Minister John Boyce. (AB)
