The increase in pensions to be received by M-L-A's, which has caused so much controversy of late, is not all that great.

So claims Hampton-Kings M-L-A Bev Harrison who would be eligible for a 70 thousand dollar a year pension if he retires this year.

Harrison tells CHSJ News the increase in benefits isn't as high as the 85 per cent previously reported.

Harrison says the tax free allowance was done away with, based on the recommendation of a judge, and those dollars were added to the salaries of M-L-A's which also affect the pensions they would receive.
