AZHAR KHAN | NOMURA

“Given the importance of our PM's role and the decision making involved, his salary does not make economic sense to me. I think he deserves to be compensated more.”

GARETH MORTIMER | ADVANTAGE PROFESSIONAL

“I think it’s understandable. It seems like rather a high number. It certainly doesn't bother me that a doctor is paid a high salary, but very highly paid managerial roles should not exceed the PM’s salary.

MIKE JORDAN | HISCOX

“The Prime Minister's job involves a great deal of pressure and responsibility. I have always been surprised that it isn't one of the highest paid jobs in the country.”
