MP’s To Get Pay Rise

The, “Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority” (Ipsa) given responsibility for Westminster pay and perks in the wake of the expenses scandal is pressing ahead with plans to, (after the 2015 general election) boost salaries by £7,600 to £74,000, but a fifth of the total number of MP’s are still lobbying for the salary to be increased to £95,000.

Former Commons speaker Baroness Boothroyd appearing on BBC Radio 4’s, “The Westminster Hour” commented, “The taxpaying public aren’t going to like it, but I think they’re just going to have to take it on the chin”.
