  10. Quote: MHKS RECEIVE INFLATION-BUSTING PAY RISE MHKS have received two inflation-busting pay rises in just five weeks. It takes the basic salary to £34,152, from £31,651. Members of Tynwald are also entitled to expenses worth £5,790. MHKs and MLCs serving on government departments will take home £50,188, while ministers will receive £57,018, more than £4,000 extra. Last year's earnings survey revealed the average annual wage was just £25,428, and half of all full-time workers earned less than £21,736. In early March it was agreed to hand members a salary increase worth 4 per cent, backdated to August 1. Another boost, worth 3.75 per cent, was applied in April 1. Both figures are above the 3.2 per cent February inflation rate, the most up-to-date figures available from Treasury. The changes take the chief minister's salary to more than £67,000, members of the Treasury will receive £53,600 and chairman of statutory boards £3,415 on top of the basic salary and expenses. Members serving on government departments are allowed £10,246 on top of their salaries, although they only receive one payment regardless of how many departments they serve on. The increases were automatically applied when the long-running civil service pay deal reached a conclusion at the start of March. After months of wrangles between the Government Officers' Association and Civil Service Commission, thousands of staff accepted a deal in a union ballot in late February. Under the Tynwald members pay agreement, which links wage increases to civil service terms and conditions, the same percentage rises were handed to MHKs and MLCs. The pay award has come under fire from long-serving Tynwald member and former House of Keys speaker Victor Kneale. 'How do they justify this? They don't even try,' he said. 'They just thumb their noses at the public, take the money and keep their heads down below the parapet. 'Such abuse of a privileged position is unforgivable.'
