Proposed MP pay rise - Westminster still doesn't get it

Bassetlaw MP John Mann has today condemned the decision by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority to launch a consultation on their proposals to increase MPs pay to £74,000 a year.

 

John Mann has consistently spoken out against the proposals and repeatedly urged the Parliamentary authorities to stop this decision.

 

John Mann said “At a time when the Chancellor is asking every Government Department to cut billions more from their budgets and public sector employees have been offered a 1% pay increase this decision needs stopping.”

 

Mann continued “This decision to award a massive pay increase shows that Westminster still doesn’t get it, your first decision as a newly elected or re-elected MP should not be to award yourself a pay rise.”
