Ban MPs from having second jobs

Petition Details

We ask the Government and Parliament to ban MPs from having second jobs whilst they are meant to be representing their constituencies

Additional Information

MPs are already paid over £80,000 a year to represent their constituencies. Having a second job not only has the potential to create conflicts of interest, but it can also mean that the MP no longer has sufficient time to help and respond to the issues of their constituents, who are the ones that voted for the MP so that they would be represented fairly. There should be no need for MPs to have a second job, but more importantly, they should already be busy with their MAIN job as an MP.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
