MPs pay rise: Danny Alexander MP says the rise would be 'wholly inappropriate'

The Liberal Democrat Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has condemned an 11% pay rise for MPs.

The increase set to be unveiled next week by the Independent Parliamentary watchdog Ipsa, would see salaries go up to £74,000 in 2015.

Mr Alexander told Andrew Marr it would be "wholly inappropriate for MPs to get such a large pay rise at a time when every other public sector worker sees their pay rises capped at one per cent".
