MPs will receive a one per cent pay rise this year

Mr Maughan needs to get his facts straight (News Post Leader, Letters, April 3).

MPs have not received a pay rise since 2008, until last year when we received one per cent.

This year MPs will receive another one per cent.

If Mr Maughan were a good trade unionist, he would never argue that someone is getting more but should always argue that he wants the same.
