MPs will be able to vote on whether or not to award themselves inflation-busting pay rises on July 3, it has been confirmed.
Commons Leader Harriet Harman said MPs would be able to debate proposals on expenses the same day.
They will get the chance to vote on the thorny issue of their addresses being made public.
Ms Harman agreed proposals by Tory former minister Christopher Chope (Christchurch) two debates be held.
MPs will debate an independent report on pay by Sir John Baker as well as on reimbursing expenses. It is set to be the last time they will be able to vote on their own salaries.
This week Prime Minister Gordon Brown announced ministers are to forgo pay rises for 2008/9 to reflect the importance of public sector wage restraint at a time of economic uncertainty.
Ms Harman told Tory Julian Lewis (New Forest E) she would place a resolution before the Commons so MPs could “vote for the views expressed” in his motion.
The motion attacks an Information Tribunal ruling, backed by the High Court last month, that information on 14 serving and former MPs’ expenses had to be revealed.
A detailed breakdown of the expenses of MPs dating to 2004 is set to be released in autumn.
Mr Chope called for separate debates on salary and expenses. Ms Harman said: “I will take up your proposal and we will have two debates, one on remuneration, pay and pensions and the other of reimbursement of expenditure which members need to run their office, travel to their constituency and live away from their constituency when they’re here and the House is sitting.”
Mr Lewis told MPs he asked the three High Court judges to send him their home addresses but had been “firmly” refused.
He added: “Clearly judges believe they are more at risk from MPs than MPs are at risk from everybody else.”
Ms Harman said MPs should not have to “look over their shoulder” and must be able to speak freely.
She had to move out of her London home when its roof was invaded by Fathers 4 Justice protesters this month.
She told MPs: “The consensus is there should be transparency, we should ensure the public knows public money is being spent properly and that will be the subject of proposals from the MEC in relation to members’ allowances and reimbursement of expenditure.
“While on the one hand MPs want to ensure there is confidence on how money is spent, it is clear we must have freedom to debate in this chamber without having to look over our shoulder because our addresses have been published sometime in the past.”
She added: “I propose not only that the House should have the opportunity to debate this ... but also I will place a resolution before the House so that MPs will be able to have the opportunity to vote for the views that are expressed in your motion.”
