LONDON: Iraqi-born British parliamentarian Nadhim Zahawi has criticized plans for MPs to receive a £3,300 ($4,278) pay rise, and confirmed to Arab News that he will donate his to a charity in his local constituency Stratford-upon-Avon.

“I don’t think a pay rise is appropriate,” the Conservative MP told Sky News. “I think it’s a privilege in many ways to serve your country.”

British MPs’ annual salary currently stands at £81,932. The increase would push it over £85,000.
