MPs have seen their salaries rise steadily over the past decade, despite a recent two-year pay freeze.
- The basic pay for a MP is now £66,396 a year - compared to a salary of £56,358 10 years ago and £43,860 at the time of the 1997 general election.
- It went up from £65,738 in April following the ending of the pay freeze agreed by Parliament in March 2011.
- The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) has set a further rise to £67,060 from next April.
Nick Clegg has warned the public would not understand it if MPs were awarded a bumper pay rise.
With so much focus on MPs pay, how do their salaries match up with that of their European and US counterparts.
