161117 - Northern Ireland Assembly: Members (Answered)

Lady Hermon
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, which of the Northern Ireland political parties objects to the salaries of MLA's being cut in the continued absence of a functioning Northern Ireland Assembly; and if she will make a statement.

Mr Shailesh Vara

It would be a matter for the political parties to give their public position on the issue of MLA pay.

The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland is carefully considering all the issues and will set out the next steps on this matter in due course.
