Categorised under the topic of Members of Parliament.

That this House notes the continued widespread public distrust of allowances paid to hon. Members and welcomes the independent review being undertaken by the Committee on Standards in Public Life of the allowances, but believes that to fully restore public faith in Parliament the Committee should review both hon. Members' pay as well as allowances; and further believes that such a review must have no predetermined rates or starting points but should seek to set out a fair system that rewards hon. Members and their staff for their work, is open and transparent, and will restore confidence in parliamentary pay and allowances, whilst maintaining support for hon. Members' work in the House, as well as communicating with and helping constituents, with the outcome of such a report to be then binding on the House.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
