Bassetlaw MP dismisses "barmy" call to pay MPs on select committees an extra ten grand

John Mann MP has dismissed the call by the think tank ‘Reform’ to pay MPs who serve on a House of Commons select committee an extra £10,000 a year. 

The Bassetlaw MP, who sits on the Treasury Select Committee, commented: “This is a full-moon policy which must have been dreamt up during the solar eclipse.”

“Paying MPs extra for turning up to select committee meetings is a barmy idea.”

“MPs are already paid a very good salary and need no extra pay incentives to do the job that they were elected to do.”
