e-petition for UK Government

MPs to be paid proportionately to Voting Turnout


The wishes of people who choose not to vote are not represented.


The linking of the pay of MPs to the turnout (not the percentage of voters who actually voted for them) in their constituency would better reflect the wishes of the electorate.


34.9% of the electorate chose not to vote in the last General Election.


Applying this amendment would have the immediate beneficial effect of reducing the overall pay of MPs by £15 million per annum.


Another small step towards reducing the budget deficit and leading by example.
