(ANSA) - Rome, September 13 - Eighteen Italian
public-sector managers still benefit from annual salaries in
excess of the 294,000-euro cap set by Premier Mario Monti's
government in its battle to slash government spending and lower
Italy’s massive public debt.
The data was released by Civil Service Minister Filippo
Patroni Griffi at a parliament hearing on Thursday.
Patroni Griffi specified the figures he had available refer
to only 37 public administration bodies that had been involved
in the research report, out of a total of 80.
The minister was answering questions about the monitoring
carried out on the application of the 'Save Italy' decree
introduced by Monti's government after he was appointed in
November 2011 to replace outgoing prime minister Silvio
Berlusconi.
Monti's government said it was addressing the nation's
1.95-trillion-euro debt load as a top priority after being
appointed.
An initial 35-billion-euro spending cuts package had been
introduced earlier, followed by an additional 26 billion euros
of public spending reductions over the next three years.
He also announced plans to lay off some 24,000 government
employees.
Of the total of 80 public-sector bodies that are affected
by the salary cap, only 37 responded to a questionnaire sent
round by Patroni Griffi's ministry.
Patroni Griffi specified that of the 80 entities, some 15
oversaw public parks and as such were in the lower end of the
salary bracket.
Some members of parliament told Patroni Griffi that they
were favourable to some form of salary-cap exemption,
particularly in cases where there were significant risks and
responsibilities tied to the job, such as in the case of the
head of the Italian police force or the Italian inland revenue.
Patroni Griffi said he would refer this request to Monti.
