Don't stall on changes to MP's Pensions

The government has been quick enough to change terms and conditions of public sector pensions. But there is a lack of leadership (or perhaps its just self interest) in changing pension arrangements to Member of Parliament. This government has said we are all in this together but this doesn't appears to be the case. Surely if the country can't afford public sector pensions as they stood then it can't afford not to change the pensions of MP's.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

MPs' Pensions are the responsibility of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority.
