The Green Party is calling for cross-party support to agree on a system of indexing MPs’ salary movements to median income, following the announcement of a significant pay rise for MPs, the Green Party said today.
“The Green Party is proposing that MPs’ salaries should be indexed to movements in the nominal median individual income,” Green Party Co-leader Russel Norman said.
“The system needs to change. Every year MPs across Parliament say ‘oh it’s too much’, but then nothing changes. It’s embarrassing, and it’s time for it to end.
