Sir: Surely ministers' pay awards (report, 27 January) should be performance-linked, like teachers' and nurses' pay? Targets should be set, such as percentage of manifesto pledges met and reduction in time waited for politicians to give straight answers to questions. A new regulator, Ofgov, would, of course, make regular inspections and publish its findings.
