Angela Rayner on Dominic Cummings’ payrise

Angela Rayner MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, responding to reports that Dominic Cummings received a pay rise of at least £40,000 this year, said:

“Boris Johnson defended Dominic Cummings when he broke lockdown rules – then awarded him a £50,000 pay rise. Yet he’s freezing pay for key workers and refusing to give our care workers a pay rise to the living wage.

“Cummings’ bumper bonus is an insult to key workers denied the pay rise they deserve. It’s another example of how under this government it is one rule for the Tory Party and their friends and another for the rest of us.”
