David Cameron has confirmed to ITV News he will take a 10% pay rise, after the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority confirmed the increase to MPs salaries.
The increase will mean Mr Cameron will receive an extra £7,000 per year.
Speaking to ITV Westcountry, the Prime Minister said "personally, the right thing to do is to be paid the rate for the job", but added he didn't agree with Ipsa's decision.
The Prime Minister did not say what he would do with his pay rise but did say that it "gives you the opportunity to do more in terms of charitable giving and things like that."
