MHK to ask public sector salary questions

Public sector salaries will come under scrutiny in next week's sitting of the House of Keys.

Onchan MHK Julie Edge will ask a series of questions about pay trends for Government workers over the last five years.

Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas will be asked why there has been an increase in the amount going to those who earn over £50,000 in that period, and to provide a breakdown by employee group or grade for those earning less than £50,000.

Ms Edge also wants to know how Government plans to avoid increasing its overall expenditure on public sector pay in the future.

The House of Keys sits on Tuesday.
