The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) said the issue of politicians' salaries could no longer be "ducked" and it is pushing ahead with the increase from £67,060 to £74,000.
However, the watchdog has climbed down on plans to link their pay to UK-wide average earnings in future – a move that could have left MPs £23,000 better off by 2020.
Instead they will be restricted to average rises in the public sector.
The proposals have caused bitter divisions among MPs, with some decrying the award and others arguing they have been underpaid for decades.
Here's what some of them had to say after the pay rise was announced in Parliament.
Tobias Ellwood (Foreign Office Minister)
"I know I speak for the silent majority (who are not millionaires) to say this increase is well overdue... I hope common sense will prevail and this pay rise will be honoured."
Keith Vaz (Labour MP and Home Affairs Select Committee chairman)
"I am supporting Ipsa's recommendations as they have been done independently of members."
Mark Field (Tory MP)
"Ipsa ... must work totally free from government influence."
Rory Stewart (Conservative chair of the defence select committee)
"In my view Ipsa was established precisely to take away the responsibility of this sort of decision from the hands of MPs ...
"MPs were traditionally unpaid. And Parliament predicted when salaries were introduced that it would be a source of continual public disappointment and anger, as it has been...
"My fundamental conclusion is that an independent body such as Ipsa is now and should be in the future the appropriate body to make recommendations – not MPs themselves.
"I believe Ipsa has conducted serious research and comparisons. I believe they are in a better position than MPs to be objective. I would accept their recommendation."
Alan Johnson (Labour former home secretary)
"It cannot be right that Members of Parliament receive such a substantial increase, which will damage our standing with the constituents we serve, and once again lead to the reputation of Members of Parliament being besmirched...
"Please think a bit again about this – at the very least you should put your report on hold with a view to implementing it when conditions allow."
Johnny Mercer (Tory MP)
"I wish to put on record my objection to this pay rise. It is not even close to being appropriate at a time of fiscal restraint.
"I understand the logic entirely – bringing Ipsa standards back into line with other industries. However whilst public sector pay remains frozen, I will object at every opportunity."
Gloria De Piero (Labour frontbencher)
"If I were to accept a 10% pay rise I would simply not be able to look the constituents I serve in the eye. I believe the vast majority of them would quite rightly be appalled.
"I strongly urge Ipsa to provide a mechanism for MPs who wish to return any additional salary they receive that is over and above the amount awarded to other public sector workers in pay settlement to the Treasury so it can be put to better use."
Alison Thewliss (SNP MP)
"I would like to make absolutely clear that I am personally extremely uncomfortable with this rise. I did not ask for it and I do not want it. With cuts to services across the UK and the impact of austerity being felt in the communities I represent, there is no justification for such a rise.
"It is rightly hugely unpopular with the public, and does nothing to restore the reputation of MPs which was so damaged by the expenses scandal. I urge you to reconsider."
Flying high literally as well as metaphorically, pilots top the salary scale this year. There are various routes into the job, from university courses to airlines' own training schemes; private training will set you back as much as £50,000 to £60,000.
"I most enjoy the variety of the job, working as a team, to a schedule, with the responsibility of safely transporting hundreds of people to their destination. I would advise aspiring pilots to thoroughly research training routes, understand the serious financial outlay required with no guarantee of a job after training and to consider other routes such as flight instruction."
