MP ANDREW Turner has pledged to donate any pay rise during the next parliament to good causes.
The Isle of Wight MP was responding to reports changes to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) system could mean MPs would not have a say in setting their pay and pensions and that they could be in line for an 11 per cent rise.
Mr Turner said: "My own view is that such a move would be both ill-judged and ill-timed and I hope IPSA will reconsider. They should have taken overall public service pay and pensions restraint into account when making their recommendations.
"I await the detailed proposals, but in any event they will not be final.
"There must be a further statutory review by IPSA after the next election. However, if these reports are correct and there is no way to refuse it, I would pass the increase I receive from such a large pay rise to good causes on the Island for the duration of the next Parliament."
MPs earn a basic wage of £66,396. According to the 2011 Census the median gross salary on the Isle of Wight was £17,701.
