MPs’ pay rise ‘not on’
8:40am Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
Witney MP and Prime Minister David Cameron said it was “simply unacceptable” that MPs could get an 11 per cent pay rise, hours before a report is published today.
Speaking in the House of Commons yesterday during Prime Minister’s Questions, he said: “I think it would be wrong for MPs to get a big pay rise at a time of public sector pay restraint.”
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority is due to make recommendations today to increase members’ salaries by £7,600 after the 2015 General Election.
