    Members of Parliament, Mayors, the Police Commissioner and Defence Force chiefs are among those having pay cuts - for as long as six months

    Members of Parliament, Mayors, the Police Commissioner and Defence Force chiefs are among those having pay cuts - for as long as six months


    Last month, the Prime Minister announced all Ministers would take a 20 percent pay cut for six months.

    Many mayors and councillors also volunteered to earn less because of Covid-19.

    That becomes official today when legislation will be introduced to Parliament to change the Remuneration Authority Act.

    Other officials - including the Ombudsman, Chief Censor and Retirement Commissioner will also have their pay docked.
