Opposition Party Questions Huge Pay Increase For Senior Civil Servant

Sinn Fein is demanding to know why a senior civil servant at the Department of Health is to receive a 38 percent pay rise.

Robert Watt is taking on the Secretary General role on an interim basis while the recruitment process takes place.
Once that is completed, the salary will increase from 211,000 euro to 292,000 euro.
Sinn Féin's Mairead Farrell says it is wrong given the crisis we are in and the number of people unemployed across the country
