Salaries of both elected and unelected officials

The salaries of both MHKs and unlecected persons in the CoMin shoudl reflect that of the population at large. People are mightily weary of being told they need to tighten their belts, then seeing the list of salaries of the people telling us this. Yes, I appreciate that the people looking at this are unlikely to effect this change, but you should really look to what is best for the island you purport to serve.

Why the contribution is important

Cost-cutting should start from the top, and MHKs and others should lead by example.

    Good point.

    Add to it that MHKs get 3 years pension for every 1 year worked, and a nice tax free lump sum on retirement.
    £6k travel allowance!
    Free car parking.
    Paid for each position they take up.
    World wide travel fact finding!!
    Yes start showing some leadership on cost cutting.

    ...and a transition payment (6 months salary?) if they are rejected by their electorate. Also the spouse and children's benefits are exceptionally generous when compared even with most defined benefit schemes.

    I suspect that this is a sacred cow with a high chance of survival....particularly for existing members...
