Trends in ‘Conservative budget advice’ after minister’s spending revealed

0

People struggling during the cost-of-living crisis should consider taking longer hours at work or moving to a better paying job, a government minister has said.

Rachel Maclean said Sky News“I think what we need to focus on now is the long term.

“We are under these short-term pressures that we are all aware of.

“But in the long term, we need to have a plan to grow the economy and make sure people are able to better protect themselves, whether that’s by taking more hours or getting better paying jobs.

“These are long-term actions, but that is what we are focused on as a government.”

The remarks come as it emerged Maclean claimed just over £213,000 in spending last year, which is above the £203,000 average claimed by MPs.
