MICHEÁL Martin will be paid almost €1,500 more as Taoiseach than his predecessor Leo Varadkar, despite announcing a 10pc pay cut for himself and Cabinet ministers.

Senior ministers will be better off to the tune of almost €600 than their counterparts in the last government under the plans to change senior ­politicians’ pay.
