Can an MP or Minister's salary be reduced or stopped?
IPSA holds some of the information you request.
As set out in the email from the House of Commons, the Cabinet Office is responsible for the payment of Ministerial salaries.
In relation to MPs’ salaries, IPSA is responsible for the setting of MPs’ pay levels, on which we are currently conducting a consultation, and for the payment of MPs’ salaries. IPSA would withhold pay where the House of Commons has taken disciplinary action against a Member of Parliament by suspending them from the service of the House.
Arrangements surrounding any leave of absence are not administered by IPSA.
We can only suggest that you apply again to the House of Commons, firstname.lastname@example.org who may be able to assist you further in relation to arrangements relating to sickness or other prolonged absences.
