Consultation to date on MPs' pay and pensions
We ran our first consultation from 15 October to 7 December 2012 seeking views from the public, MPs and other interested parties on how best to remunerate MPs for their work. That consultation was the first stage of the process. We have analysed the responses to that consultation (see responses here) and have now developed a recommended remuneration package for MPs for consultation. Please see our pay and pensions home page for a copy of the consultation document and details on how you can respond. We will make a final determination in autumn of this year, which will come into effect with the election of the new Parliament, scheduled for 2015.
For your reference, you can still read the first consultation document and the shorter summary paper, from 2012, and the report on the research into public attitudes on MPs’ pay and pensions by ComRes.
