HC Deb 12 February 1979 vol 962 c372W
34. Mr. Ridley

asked the Lord President of the Council if he will bring forward legislation to link the salaries of hon. Members to the mid-point on the assistant secretaries' scale.

Mr. William Price

I would remind the hon. Member that the House agreed in July that the whole general issue of Members' pay, including the question of linkage, should be referred to the Review Body on Top Salaries. It is only sensible to await its report before discussing future proposals on pay.
