Between 2012 to 2015, we conducted a comprehensive review of MPs' pay and pensions. To find out more about IPSA's review of MPs' pay and pensions, please click here.

Select Committee Chairs

MPs who chair select committees, or who are members of the Panel of Chairs, are entitled to an additional salary. Since 2013, IPSA has had responsibility for determining these additional salaries.

Between March and May 2016, we conducted a consultation on these additional salaries, the outcome of which can be found via this link.

Government Ministers and MPs with additional responsibilities

These additional entitlements are administered separately by other bodies. Further information on these can be found on Parliament's website via this link.
