MPs' salaries — Increases capped to 2.3% — rejected — 3 Jul 2008 at 15:05

Helen Jones MP, Warrington North voted in the minority (Aye).

The majority of MPs voted against capping their annual salary to 2.3% by inserting the extra words[1] into the motion for debate:[2]

  • from 1st April 2008 and from 1st April of each subsequent year a Member's salary should be increased by the percentage increase in the 3 month average Public Sector Average Earnings Index for January of that year relative to the figure for January of the previous year...
  • provided that, without prejudice to the calculations based on the agreed formula, from 1st April 2008 the annual salary is increased by no more than 2.3 per cent. and that the balance of any increase due at 1st April 2008 should be payable from 1st April 2009 in addition to any increase payable at that date.

This motion for debate (effectively) amended in the next vote before it was passed.[3]
