Salary levels for MPs and MLAs are set independently and it is proper that elected representatives should have no input into the setting of their salaries. Both Westminster and Assembly salaries are due to increase in April in line with independent determinations.
Democratic Unionist Party does not believe there should be salary
increases at this time. Consequently all Democratic Unionist MPs and
MLAs will be donating the salary increase they have been awarded to
support local good causes at this time of Covid-19 crisis.
Our representatives have been working on the ground to support constituents at this time and we will continue to do so in the face of this Covid-19 health and economic crisis.
