HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c488W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will make a statement giving details as to what extent the three Members who have decided to draw reduced salaries with a saving of £1,275.04 to the House of Commons Vote as at 30th June, 1972 will be able to claim these payments at a later date or whether if same is not claimed when due, the amount is lost for all time.

Mr. R. Carr

Members who have accepted reduced Parliamentary salaries may claim arrears in respect of the current financial year but are unable to do so in a subsequent financial year.
