Cameron and Miliband jointly condemn planned MP pay rise


David Cameron answered questions from Ed Miliband and backbench MPs on 11 November 2013.

Prime minister's questions take place for half an hour every Wednesday that the house is sitting.

Both the prime minister and leader of the opposition agreed that they felt a pay rise for MPs would not be appropriate in the current climate.

David Cameron called on the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) to "think again" on plans to give MPs an 11% pay increase.

Ed Miliband said the rise would be inappropriate because "most people are going through a cost-of-living crisis".

Other topics covered during the session included living standards, tax breaks for married couples, Universal Credit and dementia research funding.
