MPs revealed as still hiring relatives

BBC Politics

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.

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

Conservative Bill Cash holds Stone

The prominent Eurosceptic saw his majority increase by 8.5% on 2015 as he received 31,614 votes, more than double Labour's Sam Hale.

After the result he told BBC Radio Stoke there were two main issues for him now.

There are unresolved questions and the most important two for me are number one, to leave the European Union, to have a successful renegotiation and the other is to have a policy of economic growth to pay for everything else."
