Advisory board pay cut 'mean'

The Government was accused yesterday of being mean and using double standards in introducing a 3.68 per cent cut to the maximum remuneration rate for advisory bodies.


The Labour Advisory Board, which suggested the guidelines for a pay cut and lay-offs last October, is one of the bodies affected by the increase, which takes effect from Sunday.


Non-official members of the board have been told that their remuneration will be reduced by $30, from $815 to $785 for each board meeting attended.


Lee Cheuk-yan of The Frontier said the Government was mean and guilty of double standards as it had not reduced civil servants' salaries.
