Politicians’ pay remains unchanged
Salaries paid to members of the legislature are to remain unchanged, Parliament heard on Friday.
David Burt, the Premier, told MPs that the board appointed to review salaries every two years had not met since 2011.
Mr Burt said a new set of ex parte members, drawing on the professional expertise of the community, had been appointed, and that he looked forward to seeing its report as required by law.
Annual salaries include $30,367 a year for senators, while MPs are paid $56,023.
