Request

I am seeking the data behind one of the charts published in the MP Pay consultation document.

I refer to the Ratio of an MP's salary relative average earnings 1911-2012. I wish to refer to some of the ratios in particular years,  but it s not possible to read them off the small graph.

Please can you provide me the spreadsheet with the three columns each covering 1911-2012 showing for each year:
~ MP salary (£pa)
~ national average earnings (£pa)
~ Ratio of above two (as plotted in IPSA graph).
