A Guernsey politician has claimed his pay cheque for the first time since the 2012 election.

Deputy Peter Gillson accepted the £42,450 per year salary when he was made a minister in March.

Up until then he was a back bencher and despite being entitled to a £30,770 salary, he did not feel his workload warranted the money.

The information was revealed in the 2013 States accounts that were published on Friday.

About £1.7m was paid to deputies in 2013.
