Top advisers to Hong Kong’s leader shocked by proposed pay rise for civil servants

Executive councillor Regina Ip says residents will find proposal hard to accept as more than 200,000 people had lost their jobs or were underemployed.
Several top advisers to Hong Kong’s leader have expressed shock over a suggestion senior civil servants receive a pay increase as high as 7.26 per cent, which would be a record.

One Executive Council member on Saturday said the decision over the size of the salary bump could be left to the next government under incoming leader John Lee Ka-chiu, as the matter might not be discussed by Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor’s team before her term ended on June 30.
