When I was elected to Parliament, I pledged to take a worker’s wage instead of my full MP salary. As a representative of working people, it’s important to me that my income is not vastly different to that of other workers. Therefore, I chose to take home £35,000 after tax (the average UK household income) and to donate the remainder of my salary to local causes.
So far, my donations include:
– £8,000 to St Ann’s Advice Centre
– £7,000 to POW Nottingham
– £2,000 to the Nottingham branch of the App Drivers & Couriers Union
– £2,000 to the Nottingham couriers branch of the IWGB union
