Under the planned restructuring - through a UK-administered "company voluntary arrangement" (CVA), which prevents the firm from going into administration - ailing Mothercare will cut rents at 21 stores, in addition to the planned closures.

Sky News understands that the salary cut is a reflection of the struggle facing the business, many of whose staff are facing an uncertain future after the announcement of the store closure plan.
The Irish business exited an examinership in October 2015 that resulted in three stores being closed at Blackrock and Jervis Street in Dublin and Cruises Street in Limerick and significant rental reductions being achieved. In 2015 the unit was subdivided and fellow retailer Smyths Toys took 15,000 sq ft of space. With no sign of a deal, Rotherham-based retailer Maplin is also set to close its Parkgate store.
