Senator clears air on MP salaries

September 6, 2023

Government Senator Gregory Nicholls wants the Democratic Labour Party leader to correct what he says is a misleading social media post about the salaries of MPs.

In a statement, Senator Nicholls explained Dr. Ronnie Yearwood put out a tweet making a comparison between what local MPs receive and their British counterparts.

However, Senator Nicholls notes the British leader receives a significantly higher sum than the Prime Minister of Barbados.

He also stressed local representatives do not receive as many perks or allowances as their British counterparts.
