What about the rest of us?
Senior MPs could be in line for their THIRD bumper pay rise in a year.
Around 80 members who also help chair committee meetings and debates are set to get the eye-watering wage hike.
Half are in line for an extra £3,700 a year – the other half could see up to £15,000 more in their pay packets.
Chairs – who lead meetings of the influential groups – already get up to £15,000 on top of the £74,000 they get for being an MP, depending on their length of service.
In April, all MPs are in line for a 1.3% increase in their basic salary – which is already more than three times the national average.
