The annual adjustment to MPs’ basic pay for 2016-17 will be an increase of 1.3%, bringing the overall salary to £74,962, as of 1 April 2016.
This is in line with our determination on MPs’ pay, published in July 2015, where we committed to adjusting MPs’ pay for the rest of this Parliament at the same rate as changes in public sector earnings published by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
The ONS index takes account of promotions and bonuses which may explain why the figure is higher than the 1 per cent wider public sector pay policy.
The full determination can be viewed on our website, alongside more information on our review of MPs' pay and pensions: http://parliamentarystandards.org.uk/payandpensions
