Government Department inflationary increases

As a matter of policy government departments should not be allowed to increase charges levied on the public either directly or  a indirectly more than the CPI (the previous December figure probably) unless under exceptional circumstances approved by Tynwald. 

This should encourage Departments to make efficiency savings from within their own department rather than using the soft option of increasing charges to the public, who have got no alternative than to pay them.


Why the contribution is important

A cap on the increase of any public service charges to less than CPI should encourage Departments to focus more on making efficiency savings rather than just raising charges to meet their budget commitments. 

Hopefully it should encourage more inventive solutions to rising costs.
