Harrow’s MPs ‘other income’ published

There are two MPs for Harrow: Gareth Thomas, who is the MP for Harrow West, and Bob Blackman, the MP for Harrow East. Both of them have declared ‘other income’ in a Parliamentary Report available here. The report makes interesting reading, especially for some of the top ‘earners’ in the Government, although the two entries for Messrs Thomas and Blackman are rather more mundane (althought it’s odd that their foregin trips are right in the middle of Summer Holiday time, no?):

    Nice work guys!

    I have a tip off for you, Gareth Thomas has just agreed to come on my show in December.

    You heard it first – I’m keeping it under wraps right now. 😉
