Lady Hermon
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, with reference to her oral contribution of 21 March 2018, Official Report, column 337, if she will publish the representations made to her by each of the main political parties on cutting MLA salaries; and if she will make a statement.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has received no written representations from the political parties on the issue of MLA pay, and is carefully considering all the issues and will set out the next steps on this matter in due course.
