LONDON:
British members of parliament could see their annual salaries increased by as much as £40,000 (BD30,240) in turn for giving up expenses allowances for second homes.

The proposed increase would translate into about £24,000 after tax and would be roughly equal to the maximum currently allowed for expenses related to a second home.

The Sunday Times said the plan was one of three possible options to be put forward by a committee of senior MPs chaired by House of Commons speaker Michael Martin.

MPs earn just under £62,000 a year and can claim up to £24,000 with receipts to help with the costs of running both a constituency and a London home.

The committee launched the review of MPs expenses after Conservative MP Derek Conway was found paying his son from his expenses.

Twats !! their pay rise is bloody more than some people earn. Glad to see the politicians are looking after their countrymen......
