Luke Pollard MP said:
“Being an MP is a real privilege and I try to make sure that I am doing politics differently. I am the first Plymouth MP to ever have an office in the city centre. Unlike Plymouth’s Conservative MPs I do not employ my wife or any other family member. All permanent roles are fully advertised. I try to be an MP rooted in the community where I live and where I represent.
The majority of the office costs employ my brilliant team who work so hard to support the people I represent. We have bought IT and other equipment to assist with working from home during the pandemic. All my office costs are available online and able to be scrutinised.”
