No Pay Rise For Government Ministers

It seems Government Ministers won’t be getting a pay rise from the Budget after all.

They had been due to get a €12,000 boost – over the next three years – as part of a pay restoration deal.

But Public Expenditure Minister Pascal Donohoe is to ask Ministers to waive the rise after a public outcry.

Newspaper reports today claim Ministers’ pay is to be frozen at €157,000 with no increases next year.
