MP Allowances

Asked if the Prime Minister, as a member of the House of Commons, had any plans to involve himself in the debate about the future of MPs’ allowances, the PMS repeated what had already been made clear, which was that the Prime Minister thought it was a matter for the House authorities.

Put that the Prime Minister had taken a view on MPs’ pay, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister had taken a view on MPs’ pay and that was because we had also had to take some difficult decisions about the rest of the public sector, of which the MPs were a part.
