Wells Liberal Democrat MP Tessa Munt slams controversial pay rise

MP Tessa Munt has said she is against the 11 per cent pay rise rumoured to be recommended for MPs by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).

Ms Munt said: "At a time when everyone is being asked by the Government to tighten their belts, anyone who suggests Members of Parliament should receive a pay rise is completely out of touch with reality."

IPSA says the increase is needed to bring MPs' salaries into line with doctors and teachers. See letters page 27.
