Guernsey States approve own £5k pay rise

Guernsey States members have approved a £5,000 pay rise for the next term and an end to the members' pensions scheme.

They also agreed to end the majority of allowances and extra pay for those serving on departments or committees.

A total of 10 motions to change the proposals were put forward, with just two being passed.

One called for a summary of pay and expenses to be published annually. The new salaries will come into force after the election in April.
