REFORM SCOTLAND EXPOSES QUANGO PAY
Our client Reform Scotland has issued new research on the level of salaries at Scotland’s quangos. The research, which revealed that 43 quango officials in Scotland are paid more than the First Minister’s salary of £141,000, and that almost 700 are paid more than an MSP’s salary of £58,000, can be seen here.
Message Matters worked with Reform Scotland to design the briefing and produce a media proposal to offer the story to the Sunday Herald newspaper, which had shown significant interest in it in the past. It was followed up in almost all national and regional newspapers on Monday, as well as on the main broadcasters’ websites.
