Anwar confirms cut in development allowance for MPs

PORT DICKSON: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has confirmed that the development allowance for Members of Parliament (MPs) has been reduced to RM1.3 million from RM3.8 million.

Anwar said this move was meant to better control the country's finances and would be implemented in stages.

"This allowance is the development allocations of MPs coordinated by the District and Land Office, and State Development Officer, (being reduced) due to economic constraints.

"It will be done in stages. This will set an early example, meaning MPs don't mind the cut although they are not personal contributions but are development allocations," he told reporters at Warung Pak Salleh here today.
