Letter in The Times: Democracy not served by paying MPs less than town hall bureaucrats

Available online here (£).

The Times 
Letters to the Editor 

Sir, Voters must consider carefully whether they want their MPs, whose job of representing constituents, holding the government and others to account, and scrutinising law is hugely important, to be paid less than the bureaucrats deciding their salaries.
Democracy and respect for the parliamentary process are not enhanced by insisting that MPs are paid less than a middle-ranking bureaucrat at a town council.
