Email your MP about MPs’ second jobs
Boris Johnson’s government has U-turned on a pledge to limit MPs’ earning from second jobs. It made the commitment after a huge public backlash over plans to loosen rules on MPs’ standards. Ministers backed down and said they’d put curbs on MPs’ second jobs. Now, while we’re all distracted by the war in Ukraine, the government has said it’s not “practical” to limit MPs’ earnings outside of Parliament. But we don’t have to take this and a massive public backlash could make them think again – like it did before. Will you email your MP now to say that MPs should be focusing on working for their constituents, not on outside interests?
