MPs will soon enjoy a 1.8 percent pay rise, bringing their incomes to over £77,000. It’s their fourth pay rise in two years. Meanwhile, pay for public-sector workers – nurses, teachers and firemen – remains capped at 1 percent.
Politicians will see their pay increase by almost £1,400 in April 2018 to £77,379. MPs’ pay will have effectively risen by around £11,000 since 2014, while public servants face a real-terms pay cut amid stagnating wages and rising living costs.

The duke is the richest landowner in the UK and is worth an estimated £9 billion.
