Petition Action

Block MPs proposed £3,300 pay rise until COVID is under control.

Petition Details

It is iniquitous that MPs should get an above-inflation pay rise when COVID is still rampant and Parliament is not functioning in a Democratic fashion.
The electorate demand a say in the value for money that we get from our PUBLIC SERVANTS.

Additional Information

Change the membership of IPSA to have a majority of voters selected at random holding the deciding vote on whether pay rises are justified in light of factors at play at the time of, and in the period preceding, any consideration of remuneration for MPs.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

The UK Government and Parliament aren't responsible for setting MPs' pay. The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) is responsible for deciding on MPs' expenses and pay. IPSA is independent of both Parliament and Government.
