Salary protection generally doesn't include any protection on death, so it doesn't exempt you from the requirement for Mortgage Protection life insurance.
It might be a replacement for the optional Mortgage Repayment
Protection. Check the terms and conditions of your Salary Protection - MRP usually covers redundancy; typically Salary Protection doesn't. On the other hand Salary Protection will typically pay a claim for years if necessary; MRP typically will only pay a claim for a year.
No blanket answer to that question as individual policis are different - you need to sit down and examine both to compare like with like.
