Braintree district: MPs hit out at payrise
1:00pm Saturday 14th December 2013 in News
The district's MPs have hit out at an 11 per cent pay rise proposal which could see them earn an extra £7,500 per year.
Some MPs have suggested they would reject the rise, which would increase their salary to £74,000, but neither of the district’s MPs confirmed what they would do.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, which has sole responsibility for the decision, has previously announced the rise as a recommendation along with MPs having to pay more into their pensions, some allowances scrapped and cuts to second home claims.
