MPs' salaries are to rise from £67,060 to £74,000, a raise backdated to 8 May, the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has announced.
The government has formally registered its opposition to a proposed 10 per cent pay rise for MPs.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) - over which ministers have no control - recommended the £7,000 rise to due an upturn in the economy.
But political leaders - including the Prime Minister - have said it is "unacceptable" and "inappropriate" when other public sector workers are only being given an increase of one per cent.
House of Commons leader Chris Grayling has now written to Ipsa chairman Sir Ian Kennedy, highlighting the government's first unfavourable response to the recommendation two years ago.
The view of the government remains that a pay rise of this nature at this time is not appropriate.
You will be aware that as part of the government's commitment to cutting the cost of politics, the Prime Minister has announced that we have frozen ministerial pay for a further five years, saving an estimated £4 million.
While the Government notes the welcome economic indicators since December 2013 ... we continue to believe that despite the welcome signs of progress, the continuing structural deficit shows the job is far from done.
The government has an ongoing commitment to responsible fiscal policy and returning the public finances to a sustainable position.
