Prime Minister David Cameron has said he thinks it would be "simply unacceptable" for MPs to get a pay rise "at a time of public sector pay restraint".
Responding to Ed Miliband's question on a proposed pay rise "many times above inflation" in 2015, Cameron said there was agreement across the three main political parties on this issue.
He also said the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority - which is proposing a rise worth £7,600 - needed to "think again".
