Some lawmakers, however, have voiced their concerns about a possible pay rise, citing economic uncertainty across the country.
Tutting’s Labor MP, Dr. Rozena Alin-Khan says she will either refuse the salary increase or give it to charity.

Bishop Auckland MP Dehena Davison was also hit by the proposal.
