DO YOU SUPPORT OR OPPOSE A BAN ON MPs HAVING SECOND JOBS?

It was reported this week that MP and former Chancellor, Sajid Javid, has accepted a job with US bank JP Morgan.

The MP will work as a senior adviser on the bank’s advisory council while sitting as an MP. The bank has not disclosed Mr Javid’s pay or hours, but it is expected that he will be on the same scale as former Prime Minister, Tony Blair, who earned more than £2m a year.

MPs are allowed to take on second jobs. Some have argued that MPs should only serve the people full-time, not banks or investment funds. However, some people have also argued that working in “the real world” keeps members of Parliament grounded in reality.

We want politicians to hear from you – do you support or oppose a ban on MPs having second jobs?

Get started and have your say. Poll results are published and sent every Sunday by email.

SURVEYS & POLLS

Get Started

Research in 2018 found that nearly 1 in 5 MPs had regular paid work outside Parliament. Paid work can include media work, such as appearing on TV and radio, and writing books or columns. In 2016, Boris Johnson MP was paid around £275,000 a year by the Daily Telegraph. In 2017, Diane Abbott MP received £1,500 for an appearance on the Russell Howard show.

Some MPs also work in medical fields. Maria Caulfield MP has worked shifts as a nurse, with Rosena Allin-Khan MP and Dan Poulter MP also working in the NHS as doctors.
