Here’s a Conservative MP who doesn’t mind taking cash in return for Parliamentary action: Nigel Huddleston.
He has taken £3,000 from the boss of Travelodge and £2K from the CEO of Butlins parent Bourne Leisure, and is now demanding huge tax cuts for tourist attractions.
The donations have been openly registered, indicating that Tory MPs are happy to put their corruption on show, for all to see.
A Tory MP who is calling for huge tax cuts for tourist attractions was given donations by hotel bosses.
Newly elected Nigel Huddleston leads eight MPs who want VAT cuts of up to £20billion to boost hotels and tourist attractions.
Backed by the British Hospitality Association, they are urging VAT on tourism is slashed from 20% to 5% to compete abroad.
But the Mid Worcs MP accepted a £3,000 election gift from Travelodge chief Peter Gowers and £2,000 from John Dunford, CEO of Butlins firm Bourne Leisure.
