Request

How many MP's from each political parties have accepted the 1% pay rise which was approved by the independent Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB). Could you please also provide the constituency for each MP who has accepted the 1% pay rise.

Response

IPSA became operational on 7 May when prior to this the Parliamentary Resources Department within the House of Commons was responsible for the payment of MPs salaries. The 2010/11 increase was therefore applied by the department in April 2010 and the increase was 1.5%. We are therefore unable to help you and your request should be redirected to the House of Commons Freedom of Information Team who may be able to assist you. I have attached the link to the Freedom of Information section on the House of Commons website, which will assist you with your enquiry http://www.parliament.uk/site-information/foi/foi-general/commons-foi/.
