With regard to the appointment of a former Glanbia executive John Maloney to the IFA pay committee to address concerns about salary scales for the top executives at the IFA, it is my view that all these salaries should be in the public domain. In every walk of life we know what people are getting paid. These salaries should be made public too. What are the IFA afraid of? There are 88,000 farmers around the country who are members of the IFA. They pay the membership fees to the organisation every year and they should know the pay of these people. We know all the public service grades, it’s all out there in black and white. People know exactly what politicians earn, and rightly so too. I can’t see why these salary amounts cannot be made public.
