Treasurer Troy Buswell has admitted the state government has no power to unwind a $160,000 pay increase to the chief executive of government superannuation fund GESB, Michele Dolin.

Mr Buswell said he had expressed his strong opposition to the board-approved pay rise in a meeting late yesterday with GESB chairman Phil Harvey.

"I expressed to him in no uncertain times my view that a one-off $160,000 pay rise was impossible to justify and I asked that they reconsider their position in relation to that," Mr Buswell said.
