Watchdog Defends Plan For 11 Percent Pay Rise For British MPs

Prime Minister David Cameron calls the pay rise "inappropriate"


The body which sets MPs' salaries has confirmed that it plans to give them an 11% pay rise, claiming this will not cost the taxpayer "a penny more" once other changes are taken into account.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) wants to raise salaries by £7,600 to £74,000 in 2015.
