Government response

Response to IPSA announcement

The Prime Minister has responded to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority's announcement on MPs' pay and pensions.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Prime Minister David Cameron said:

We welcome IPSA’s announcement on MPs’ pay and pensions, ensuring that MPs are in line with other public servants, and we welcome the changes that they continue to introduce to help MPs perform their duties.

We are committed to an independent and transparent system for the regulation of MPs’ expenses which IPSA has introduced.

IPSA does an important job, and should now be allowed to continue with it.
