We, the undersigned, say Members of Parliament should have to wait on such a large pay rise.
A poll taken by The Telegraph is overwhelmingly against the rise as not appropriate in these times of austerity. Even though the recession is beginning to lift, Chancellor George Osborne has asked British citizens to endure even more years of sacrifice in order to decrease the debt.
With everyone else in the country making sacrifices and ministers taking pay cuts while Members of Parliament continue to receive a small increase, it’s unfair for them to expect more until the economy improves enough for all to enjoy increases.
We hope the Prime Minister will at least speak out against this 10,000-pound rise, and we ask the Independent Parliamentary Standard Authority to hold off on the rise until the economy improves.
Thanks for your time
