THE SALARIES of each MP in Berkshire has been revealed.

It comes after Conservative MP Sir Peter Bottomley said last week that some MPs are finding it “really grim” to live on a salary of £82,000.

The Worthing West MP said that the annual salary, which does not include expenses and perks, should be higher.

As such, a fundraiser has been set up poking fun at a Tory MP who used a media interview to complain about his £82,000 salary amid a cost of living crisis.

The go fund me page says "Support this Tory MP struggling on £80k a year. I am raising £20,000 for Sir Peter Bottomley who has courageously admitted that he is ‘struggling’ on the current MP’s salary of £80,000 per year." The page was created on Wednesday and has so far raised £70 from six generous donors.

The MPs comments come just days before the £20 uplift to Universal Credit was axed, leaving low income families to struggle.
