HC Deb 16 November 1977 vol 939 c212W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Lord President of the Council what was the salary of an hon. Member in 1965; and what it would have to be currently to have the same purchasing powers as in 1965.

Mr. Foot

The Members' salary throughout 1965 was £3,250. Increasing that salary in line with the movement in the index of retail prices between mid-1965 and September 1977 produces a figure of £10,264.
