Remuneration of Legislative Assembly Members’
Report Completed



 



By J.
Brock (FINN)



 



The final report on Roles and
Remuneration of Legislative Assembly Members has been completed and presented
to the Legislative Assembly.  The paper
will be presented to ExCo for consideration on Wednesday 26th June.



 



The public consultation was
carried out, and final report authored, by a panel consisting of Richard
Cockwell (Chair), Lewis Clifton and Justin McPhee.



 



The terms of reference for the
Panel were:



 



to have regard to the role of MLAs
and the scope of their responsibilities, together with the scheme of their
remuneration and allowances:



 



·        
to
consider whether there are any financial hindrances to standing for election
and suggest options that would maximise the pool of potential election.



 



·        
to
evaluate the options for remuneration approaches and recommend the most
appropriate remuneration option/s and the level of remuneration which should
apply.



 



·        
to
review whether the current list of politically restricted posts was
appropriate.



 



Amongst many others, the
fundamental changes recommended in the report are:



 



·        
that
MLAs should become full time, and be expected to attend business in Stanley
from mid-day Monday until Thursday evening.



 



·        
that
as a result of the role being full time, Members who have an occupation or
business interest that requires them to work during the established Assembly
business hours should have to resign this occupation.



 



·        
that
with regards to remuneration, the current system of fixed allowance and
variable daily allowances should be discontinued, and that members remuneration
should be on a full time basis with a paid annual salary of £40,000.00 per annum.



 



The full report is attached to
this press release, and is also available to download from the Government
website at

A hard copy can also be collected
from Gilbert House.



 



Recommendations of the report will
be presented by the authors at a public meeting in the Stanley, Town Hall on
Wednesday 26th June at 1700.



 



There will be a number of
presentations on the recommendations in Camp in late July, details to be
confirmed in due course.
