My position on higher pay in the public sector was set out in the Budget speech on 7 December last in which I indicated that the Government believes there should be a maximum salary rate of €250,000 in the public sector. Only a few office holder posts have salaries above this level at present with further posts in the State Agencies. While there are issues about the contractual position of incumbent post holders, it is my view that the objective of the maximum salary can be achieved within a reasonable timeframe.
