MPs should be able to work 10-15 hours a week in second jobs, says minister
The Guardian says MPs should still be allowed to work about 10 to 15 hours a week in second jobs as long as they are not offering political consultancy, a cabinet minister has said.
The international trade secretary, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, suggested the government could support new guidelines to put limits on the hours of outside work, as she gave a round of broadcast interviews on Wednesday morning.
Trevelyan, a Brexit supporter and ally of Boris Johnson, defended MPs being able to do some work outside parliament, saying it added to the “richness” of political life.
