New French cabinet takes pay cut

France's new left-leaning government will take a 30 per cent pay cut in order to "lead by example", a statement on ministers' code of ethics has revealed.

The 34 ministers, the country's first government led by a Socialist in 17 years, have also been urged to shun free holidays, reject expensive gifts and cut personal travel expenses.

They should use trains rather than planes, where a trip was no longer than three hours, drive carefully - scrupulously respecting the rules of the road - and declare financial interests for publication, said the new code.

Any gift worth more than 150 euros will also have to be surrendered, in what many are seeing as a way to distance the new leaders from the administration of former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, known for his often glitzy style.

TVNL Comment: Bravo.
