Yvette Cooper, Treasury chief secretary, has called on boardroom members
across the country to show restraint in their pay packet

Financial Times reported.
Top executives should not try to offset rising food and fuel prices by
subsidising their pay with ‘irresponsible’ rises.
‘There has to be leadership from the top down,’ said Cooper who has been
