Big parties’ MPs still responsible for their own massive pay rises

Media Release
Bob Brown 1 Oct 2011

The Australian Greens opposed legislation, in both houses of parliament, which is now leading to massive increases in politicians' pay, Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

"Both of the major parties pushed the legislation through, in both houses, while the Greens opposed it," Senator Brown said in Sydney.

"The legislation tries to shed the politician's responsibility for any forbearance in the pay increases."

"The big parties' MPs remain responsible for these massive increases."
