MPs job share: Meg Hillier and David Amess


Labour MP Meg Hillier said MPs job sharing would be "two for the price of one" and sharing is allowed in other work places, with a claim that some of the electorate "might go for it".

Conservative MP David Amess described it as crazy and demeaning, and claimed the "crackpot idea" would make Parliament "like a reality TV show".

They spoke about the issues of sharing the costs and office space and how to decide which one of the job-sharers would vote.
