Sir: Why are Conservative MPs whining about their pay? Increasing the workload of public-sector workers while eroding their pay through inflation is one of the cornerstones of Government economic policy. They call it "making efficiency gains". Surely MPs should be proud to be contributing to the economic success of the nation.

Yours faithfully,
