JUDGES are to receive extra cash on top of their pay rises to bring salaries up to levels recommended by the Senior Salaries Review Body.
Top-up levels have been set at 1.57 per cent for High Court judges, 0.63 per cent for senior circuit judges, with higher increases of 2.48 for the Lord Chief Justice and 2.41 for the Master of the Rolls and the Law Lords.
The additional rise will run for five years from April and is designed to bring salaries up to levels recommended by the review body in 1992.
The extra cash was agreed in principle by the Government last year but the specific percentages were announced last week.
High Court judges' salaries will rise to u100,000, while senior circuit judges' earnings will pass u83,000 by 1999.
