MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT HIRING RELATIVES TO INCREASE FAMILY INCOME

Almost 170 MPs have spouses, children and relatives on public payroll.


British MPs have been accused of increasing their family income by hiring relatives and giving them pay rises.

 
New figures show the bill for family members on the public payroll has soared by 50 per cent since the general election to hit almost £3.8million.

 
Several Cabinet ministers are among almost 170 MPs who declare that they have a relative on their staff, with their wages funded by the taxpayer.
