States Members Remuneration Review Body News Release
Monday 17 October 13:02
Future remuneration received by elected members of the States Assembly, following the election due in 2018, is under discussion following the launch of a consultation by the States Members Remuneration Review Body (SMRRB).
SMRRB Chairman, John Mills CBE said: “We want to hear from the public on:
- whether the Chief Minister should receive additional salary in view of his additional responsibilities;
- whether additional salary should be made available to ministers and chairmen of scrutiny panels once the economic climate has improved; and
- whether States members’ salary (£46,600) should be held level during the 2018-22 period.
Following receipt and review of the public’s comments, we will be considering our recommendations on the appropriate level of remuneration for States members for the period from 2018 to 2022 with a view to publishing them early in 2017. Meanwhile, we hope to generate a useful debate on these important issues.”
Along with the consultation document, the SMRRB is publishing the results of a public survey about members’ remuneration which was conducted in July.
