Ministry of Justice letter

Ministry Of Justice responds to ITI regarding inaccurate reporting of Interpreter salaries.

Following the very public statements made by Crispin Blunt MP in Parliament in April 2012 and subsequently on the Today programme on Radio 4, that court interpreters were earning salaries in excess of £100,000, ITI wrote to the Ministry of Justice on May 1st 2012 to contest this information.

The Institute of Translation & Interpreting is very pleased to have received the attached letter (dated Dec 31st 2012) that recognises that the figures quoted had not been verified by the MoJ.

ITI has responded to the MoJ saying that we are pleased they have acknowledged the inaccuracy but the wide reporting of the quotes has led to significant distress to our members and considerable effort to show that the figures were completely untrue.
