Labour leader Ed Miliband has called for cross-party talks with the Conservatives and the Lib Dems over an expected 11% pay rise recommendation by the MPs' independent standards watchdog:
If the package of proposals being set out by Ipsa is as reported it cannot go ahead when people are going through the biggest cost-of-living crisis for a generation.
We cannot have an outcome for MPs which does not command public confidence.
Therefore we are asking the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats for a cross-party approach which recognises the current economic circumstances where workers in the public and private sectors are going through such difficult times.
