Two Staffordshire MPs are among more than 100 revealed to be continuing to employ a member of their family using taxpayers' money, despite the practice being banned for new members of Parliament.
Of the 589 returning MPs, 122 have declared the employment of a relative in the latest Register of Members' Financial Interests.
Of Staffordshire's MPs, Stone's Bill Cash declared he still employs his wife, while the Staffordshire Moorlands MP Karen Bradley said she employed her husband as office manager until October 2016.
None of the 61 new MPs who secured their seats at the general election on 8 June are allowed to do so.
