Labor pledges to tie Ministers' pay to public servants

A MINISTER'S salary will be set to public sector wage increases under Labor, Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk says.

"Future MP pay rises will be linked to public sector increases," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"And I will legislate."

Ms Palaszczuk was asked if MP pay rises would go through the independent review process.

"We will legislate,  and it will be linked to public sector increases," she repeated.

"And I challenge Campbell Newman to do exactly the same."
