Labour MP Naz Shah, who was once suspended over accusations of anti-semitism has received a staggering £4,800 for teaching LEADERSHIP courses to NHS workers. Key Jeremy Corbyn ally Naz Shah pocketed almost £4,800 for the workshops.
The Shadow Equalities minister who is currently pushing for ‘Islamophobia’ to be made a crime listed the payments in Parliament’s register of members’ financial interests.
Theses include £1,200 for two sessions on leadership in February last year. It was for five hours’ work including preparation, a £240 hourly rate plus travel and accommodation costs. Shah got paid £600 for two and a half hours weeks later and £600 last November. This amounted to a total payment from the NHS of £2400
Shah earns £77,379 as an MP plus expenses and gave the workshops before becoming shadow equalities minister. A spokesperson for her said she received “normal rates”. In 2017 she accused the Governmenmt of not “fully funding” the NHS.
A spokesperson for The Taxpayers Alliance said: “She should have offered her services pro-bono rather than leeching off hard-working taxpayers. It’s disappointing health budget money was taken for ‘leadership training’.”
Health minister Steve Barclay last night said:
This is outrageous – while this Conservative government is putting billions into the NHS, the hard left just seem to want to rip it off.
Health bosses should be prioritising frontline services and patient care, not giving a disgraced Labour MP thousands of pounds of taxpayers money for leadership tips.”
