MPs are set to get a 2.9% pay increase from April, bringing the overall salary from £84,144 to £86,584.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, which sets pay for MPs, confirmed the rise will take effect from April 1. It said that the increase would be the same as the average rise for public sector workers last year.

The salary increase for MPs comes as households across the country grapple with cost-of-living pressures, with the Government also facing a wave of industrial action by nurses, railway workers, teachers and others as part of ongoing disputes over pay.
