Mottley against return of 10%
LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION Mia Mottley has continued to pile on criticism of Parliament’s decision to restore the salaries of MPs and others, insisting that the move was all about securing higher pensions and gratuities.
Addressing supporters at a St Michael North East Barbados Labour Party branch meeting at the Lawrence T. Gay Memorial Primary School on Sunday, she also insisted that the payment is retroactive.
Mottley said the information could be easily verified by checking the Remuneration and Allowances of Members Order resolution posted on the Barbados Parliament’s website.
“From May last year [we] made it clear that we will not be taking the restoration of any salary. We would not be accepting any increase from what we are getting now until such time as the public servants of this country are treated with respect and are given a salary increase in Barbados,” said Mottley.
