Do right thing

12:05pm Thursday 12th December 2013

PLANS to award MPs an 11 per cent pay rise have been criticised across Westminster, with one minister describing them as “utterly incomprehensible”.

Parliamentary watchdog Ipsa is set to recommend a rise of £7,600 to £74,000, to come in after the 2015 election.

Ipsa does not need to get the agreement of Parliament to bring in the changes.

I only hope that our MPs do the right thing and not accept this pay rise. As they should be leading by example.
