HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 c395W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many hon. Members refused to accept the last salary increase; and how many hon. Members are still disclaiming the additional salary.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Two hon. Members disclaimed the last salary increase. Since the general election all hon. Members are receiving a Parliamentary salary in accordance with the resolution of the House of 28 July 1978 and no requests have been received for disclaiming any part of the salary.

Mr. Cryer

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make it a condition of any new salary scales for hon. Members that they follow the duties of an hon. Member full-time without salaried remuneration from any other occupation or profession.

Mr. St. John-Stevas
