MPs to receive pay rise of 3.1% from next month

MPs are to receive a pay rise of 3.1% from next month.

The pay rise will see MPs salaries rise from £81,932, up from £79,468.

The decision to adjust the rate of pay for MPs has been made by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).

The interim chair of the IPSA, Richard Lloyd said;

"Our review of MPs' staffing budgets in 2019 found demands on MPs' offices were high, with staff doing difficult and stressful casework with constituents on a very wide range of problems.

"There was often high staff turnover, with salary levels below comparable roles elsewhere, based on independent benchmarked evidence."

In 2019, MPs received a pay rise of 2.7%, and 1.8% in the year previous.
