"Being an MP will be my only job," vows Justin

Justin Madders, Labour's candidate for Ellesmere Port & Neston has promised not to take any other paid work if he is elected as the area's new MP. 

His statement follows a series of allegations over recent years about how MPs from all sides of the House of Commons have risked a conflict of interest by seeking or taking paid work from outside organisations.

Justin has also backed Labour Leader, Ed Miliband's call for a ban on all MPs holding paid directorships and consultancies.

In a letter to David Cameron, Mr Miliband called on the Prime Minister to 'consult on legislation to introduce a statutory ban on such positions, as well as imposing a strict cap on all outside earnings by MPs.' He also confirmed that such a measure would be included in the next Labour manifesto.

Commenting, Justin Madders said:

"I'm proud to have built a successful career in the real world outside of politics as an Employment Solicitor, defending the rights of working people to be treated fairly and with dignity at work.

But my full focus is now on representing the people of this area, which is why I am happy confirm that I will not consider taking any other paid work if I am elected. I will be a full-time MP."

A good constituency MP, doing the job properly simply cannot have the time to do anything other than represent the area.

I grew up in this constituency and I live here with my family, so I see it an incredible privilege to be able to stand to become the local MP. Therefore my only interest is to spend as much time as I possibly can championing this area."
