QUESTION NO: 513 (NW670E)

PUBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO: 9-2013 OF 22 MARCH 2013

MR EH ELOFF (DA) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION:

Has her department formally committed to increasing the salaries of locally recruited personnel at the country’s foreign missions; if so, (a) which foreign missions were included in this commitment, (b) when was this commitment made, (c) by what percentage were salaries to be increased, (d) has the salary increase been bought into effect and (e) how much in total is the cost to the fiscus?

REPLY:

Sixty one missions in foreign countries were included for salary increases for the 2012/2013 financial year, based on the realignment of posts.  This was not a general cost of living adjustment.  The commitment was made in the 2012/13 financial year and the percentage increase varies between 0.30% to 5%, to the total cost of R 9,463,483.00.
