John Mann MP has dismissed the call by the think tank ‘Reform’ to pay MPs who serve on a House of Commons select committee an extra £10,000 a year.

“Paying MPs extra for turning up to select committee meetings is a barmy idea.”

“MPs are already paid a very good salary and need no extra pay incentives to do the job that they were elected to do.”

In a debate today in Parliament Bassetlaw MP John Mann called for survivors of child abuse to be given a “Rolls-Royce” level of support. 

Following the debate Mann commented: “Survivors of child abuse have been failed by the authorities for decades. They now deserve Rolls-Royce levels of support.”

“Survivors groups are calling for a National Institute to integrate support and counselling as well as training for whistleblowers and institutions. I was pleased that the Minister agreed to take that idea to the Home Secretary.”

“I also urged the Minister to consider a central database for missing children and training for MPs in how to help constituents who have been abused.”

“Parliament, local authorities and the CPS now need to urgently step up and vastly improve the services available to survivors.”

The Bassetlaw MP commented: “Jail for covering up child abuse should not just be restricted to a few professions. This proposal is wholly inadequate.”

 

“Why should religious leaders, the police and political party whips in Westminster who have covered up abuse escape justice?”

 

“There should not be one rule for teachers and another for politicians. Those who turn a blind eye should be locked up, however influential they are.”
