Two Birmingham and Black Country MPs employ their partners

Two Birmingham and Black Country MPs continue to employ a member of their family despite the practice being banned for new members of Parliament.

Parliament
PA
No new MPs who secured their seats in June are allowed to employ relatives

Valerie Vaz, MP for Walsall South, employs her husband, Paul Townsend, as a senior parliamentary assistant.

Jess Phillips, MP for Birmingham Yardley, employs her husband, Tom Phillips, as a constituency support manager.

James Morris, MP for Halesowen and Rowley Regis, also employed his wife, Anna Mellitt, as a communications officer until October 2016.

Voters must be able to have confidence that our democracy is resourced in an open and transparent way, so it's welcome that Parliamentary authorities have taken steps to reform the system."

Darren HughesActing chief executive of the Electoral Reform Society

Of the 589 returning MPs, 122 have declared the employment of a relative in the latest Register of Members' Financial Interests. None of the 61 new MPs who secured their seats at the general election on 8 June are allowed to do so.

Campaigners say there needs to be a clear end date for all MPs.

Birmingham MP argues against public sector pay cap

The limit on public sector salary rises could be reviewed, Downing Street has signalled, as a Labour attempt to scrap the 1% cap was defeated in Parliament.

In the Commons the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, Jess Phillips, used her own traumatic experience of childbirth to argue for higher pay for midwives.

Jess Phillips
BBC

For every hour she worked last night, and every night she was paid £12.09. My baby took two hours to be born, I nearly died in those two hours and so did he. Both of us are here to tell the tale and I think that's worth more than £24.18. It seems the ministers opposite don't agree.

Journalist, BBC Online

The Labour MP Jo Cox is being remembered across the country on the first anniversary of her murder.

Events are being held today and over the weekend as part of The Great Get Together.

Emma Reynolds, the Labour MP for Wolverhampton North East, says Jo achieved more in 12 months than others manage in a lifetime of politics.

Jo Cox
PA

She gathered together with Andrew Mitchell, you might say an unlikely partnership, but they got on very, very well, they put Syria on the map again, people had started to forget how much suffering there was in Syria and she called on the government repeatedly to do more. She brought so much energy and commitment to the role of being an MP."
