CAN EMPLOY HIS / HER PARTNER OR EVEN SONS / DAUGHTERS AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS SOME M.P`S HAVE SPENT £140-000 EMPLOYING FAMILY MEMBERS IVE ACUTUALY GOT NOTHING AGAINST EMPLOYING FAMILY MEMBERS BUT WHAT DOES GET ME ANOYED IS THE FACT THAT NON OF THEM HAVE TO PROVE HOW MANY HOURS PER WEEK THEY WORK FOR THE CONSTITUENCY THE MONIES THEY RECEIVE IS TAX PAYERS MONEY JUST LIKE THE CARERS ALLOWANCE THEREFORE THEY SHOULD PROVE TO AN INDEPENDANT BODY HOW MANY HOURS THEY WORK HOW CAN A FULL TIME STUDENT WORK AS WELL AS STUDY IN A RECENT REPORT FROM STUDENTS IT STATED THAT MOST STUDENTS "WORK" 16 HOURS PER DAY I DONT KNOW IF THAT INCLUDED WEEK ENDS.
