MPs with constituencies outside inner London are paid an Additional Costs Allowance of pounds 19,722 which reimburses them for staying away from home overnight while performing parliamentary duties.

The Prime Minister receives pounds 116,436 on top of his MP's wage, earning pounds 171,554 in total. Cabinet Ministers receive pounds 124,979, an extra pounds 69,861 on their basic salary.
