186238 - Northern Ireland Assembly: Members (Answered)

Lady Hermon
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, how much has been paid in salaries to Members of the Legislative Assembly since its collapse in January 2017; and if he will make a statement.

Mr Shailesh Vara

The budget for the payment of salaries to MLAs is held by the Assembly Commission which is the corporate body of the NI Assembly.

I would advise the honourable Lady write to the Assembly Commission to inquire on the figure for MLA salaries paid.
