MPS and Councillors voting their own pay rises.

MPS and Councillors voting their own pay rises.

Alter the laws so that people in public office both at local and national government level are not permitted to vote for their own pay rises.

Why is this important?

Repeated excessive pay rises have proved that people in local and national government positions are incapable of doing this fairly. Their pay must be in line with the sorts of pay rises (or lack of rises) that their constituents endure.


Reasons for signing

  • Anyone paid by OUR money must be accountable for it's fair usage.
  • Cambs county council has just given itself a 30% pay rise whilst most of us haven't had any pay increase for quite some time. When offered it's often around 1% for a lot of workers. Local and national government must increase pay in keeping with its constituents.
