MPs' pay rise: Nick Clegg leads calls to reject increase
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg says the public would find it "impossible to understand" why MPs should get a pay rise of up to ten thousand pounds.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority is expected to say backbench MPs' £66,000 salaries should increase to more than £70,000 from the election.
Prime Minister David Cameron has said such a plan would be "unthinkable".
