IPSA's Board

The four ordinary members of IPSA’s Board have today announced they did not reapply for their positions. Of course, these are individual choices but one contributing factor was their concern about the process used to appoint and reappoint members to the Board.

 

 

These concerns were first set out in an exchange of letters between IPSA chair, Sir Ian Kennedy, and the Speaker over the summer. The letters are available here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/offices/commons/speakers-office/speakers-publications/general-correspondence/

 

 
Sir Ian Kennedy will continue as IPSA chair.
 
ENDS

Notes:
 

 

The four Board members, who are contracted to IPSA’s Board until 13 January 2013, are:

 

Rt Hon Sir Scott Baker
Jackie Ballard
Ken Olisa OBE
Professor Isobel Sharp

SHAMEFUL


Though I fully understand that MP's pay may not be the highest, there is one rule for all and that is ALL PUBLIC SERVANTS EARNING OVER £21,000 PA ARE ON A PAY FREEZE. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

Miss S Jane


How can the IPSA claim to be independent when they are chosen by the House of Commons?Am I the only one seeing that these people were put on the board for a reason and the only one questioning this process?

Clever DEVILISHLY CLEVER


A well thought out system, planned well ahead. Put your school chums on the body that regulates your pay. Then express surprise at the outcome. plus ca change. any wonder people do not vote.. Alex

PERFORMANCE RELATED PAY PLEASE


i.e. A pay cut

IPSA


When the chair is paid over £60k for 2 days a week it is hardly surprising that IPSA comes up with the figures they do. Try talking to someone on less than £15k pa full time and get a different perspective on life.

Unfair


Even cabinet ministers are calling this pay rise unfair. Maybe the persons at IPSA need to be replaced. With a nurse, police constable, teacher and fireman. Let's see what payrise they would recommend?

OBSCENE PAY RISE PROPOSAL


If IPSA supports any increase in MPs salaries or any payments-in-kind such as subsidised food and drink then its board members should hang their heads in shame. Of course it may be that they have little understanding of shame).Pete Ridley

Madness.


No pay rise required.Half of them should be in prison.
