Ban second jobs for Members of Parliament
To prohibit secondary employment whilst being a Member of Parliament.
Being an MP should not be treated like part-time employment. If you’re an MP this should be your only job. MPs should give 100% commitment to the country and their constituents.
As the Guardian has reported that despite commitments by the Government to clamp down on MPs having second jobs, MPs made £5 million from other jobs: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/nov/27/moonlighting-mps-earn-more-than-ever-from-second-jobs-despite-crackdown
We believe this compromises MPs main role, not least by time given.
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.
