Reverse planned pay rise for MPs
Please reconsider planned pay rise for MPs of £3500
We are in the middle of a pandemic and economic crisis. Most people are losing their jobs there's talk of tax rises and more austerity to pay for this pandemic. You cannot be seriously considering a pay rise for yourselves.

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.
