Cowper Chat: candidates on wages for MPs

HOW much do you think your local Federal MP should be paid? 

Our candidates share their thoughts on their wages and those of MPs nationwide.

Greens candidate, Carol Vernon, calls for more transparency into the expenditure of MPs.

On the other side of the coin, Labor candidate Damian Wood doesn't know how much Federal MPs are paid. 

Wrapping up this segment of Cowper Chat, incumbent member, Luke Hartsuyker, says he'll leave it for the people to speculate. 

Tune in next week for our final installments of Cowper Chat, where we will be featuring our candidates' plans for their first 100 days if elected and what they think are key policy priorities.
