MP Newport West / AS Gorllewin Casnewydd
House of Commons / Ty’r Cyffredin
To whom it may concern
Following Lord Paul Bew’s call for General Election candidates to declare their intentions on second incomes, I make the following announcement.
"If I am re-elected to parliament, I will not accept any payments, other than my parliamentary salary, for my personal use . I will continue with the practice I have advocated in the past in promulgating that a fulltime wage deserves fulltime work and all additional income received by an MP beyond the salary should be given to charity. As I have made clear on numerous occasions all book royalties, serial rights and other income received by me from books, articles, lectures and elsewhere has been paid to charity"
