Ministerial Gravy Train

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The latest report of the Review Body on public sector pay found that salaries of higher public service groups have fallen out of line with the private sector and  recommended an interim increase of 7.5% pending a full review. As a result, Irish Ministers will earn more than their UK counterparts when parliamentary salaries are included (€195,800 versus �194,900).

How can this be justified when the huge differences between the respective budgets and responsibilities are taken into account and when the ineffectiveness and avoidance of accountability by many of our ministers are considered?
