As it relates to the entertainment and other allowances afforded in the public service, the ministers are not the only ones who benefit. Senior managers and the heads of departments are also given some allowances. Today our newsroom asked the APSSM’s President if those managers will lose their allowances as well.
Sharon Frazer, President, APSSM: “Well I can tell you from under the Barrow administration the HOD have seen a cut in their entertainment allowance, 25% was foregone by HOD and senior managers from post this administration. And in fact from the beginning of our discussion we had indicated that they are prepared to continue foregoing that percentage of their entertainment allowance so we went into the room with that we’re prepared to continue doing that.”
