The Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal (Tribunal) is required to set the value of the basic salary, additional salaries and work-related parliamentary allowances provided to Victorian Members of Parliament (MPs).

As part of making its Determination, the Tribunal is required to comprehensively review the existing basic salary, additional salaries, work-related parliamentary allowances, the Electorate Office and Communications Budget and superannuation and pension arrangements.

The Tribunal is using the questionnaire below to learn about your views on what the role of an MP is, how the Tribunal should consider MP pay and how you engage with your local MP. Alternatively, or in addition, you may wish to make a written submission.

Submissions must be made by 6pm on Thursday 22 August 2019.
