Given the cur­rent eco­nomic cli­mate would you be will­ing to forgo the raise? ‘The in­crease is part of the na­tional wage agree­ment and all work­ers are en­ti­tled to it and so every­one in­clud­ing pub­lic rep­re­sen­ta­tives should also get it.’ Since the last elec­tion what have you done to jus­tify your salary? ‘I have worked very hard on many is­sues. The vast ma­jor­ity of my achieve­ments have been in an in­di­vid­ual ca­pac­ity such as help­ing peo­ple with hous­ing is­sues. I wouldn’t be able to elab­o­rate on the things I have done for in­di­vid­u­als be­cause they would be con­fi­den­tial. I’m sure a num­ber of peo­ple would be happy with what I have done while there are some who wouldn’t be.’
