Earlier Downing Street declined to say whether David Cameron is ready to accept the expected above-inflation pay hike for MPs.
The PM's official spokesman told a regular Westminster media briefing:
I don't believe Ipsa have made a formal proposal yet. Any proposal that they make will be reviewed in mid-2015.
The Prime Minister's long-standing position is that the cost of politics should go down, not up. He doesn't think that MPs' pay should go up while public sector pay is being restrained.
