SALARY INCREASES FOR N.T. COUNCILLORS

Federal Cabinet today decided to give salary increases to all members of the Northern Territory Legislative Council„

The increases are the largest in the Council’s history.

The salary for ordinary Council members will rise from $2,750 to $7,250.

The salary of the Chairman will rise from $3,350 to $8,700.

There will also be increases in expenses of Council members.

The rises are the first for the Council since 1968.

Cabinet at its special meeting in Sydney was told that the increase was warranted because of the increased amount of constituency work done by Council members following a rapid rise in the Territory's population.
