§ Mr. Norman Lamont
asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will arrange for a re-examination of the situation whereby simultaneously there is a supplement to Members' salaries for Members with constituencies outside London and another supplement for those with constituencies inside London, and thereby, in effect, no basic salary which is not subject to supplementation.
§ Mr. Edward Short
The Top Salaries Review Body has recently considered the structure of Members' allowances. I do not think a further re-examination is called for.
