Our MPs should not be allowed to employ members of their families.
They should not be allowed to employ anyone using their Parliamentary allowance.
They should not be the employer — the state should.
If an MP requires a PA, secretary, typist or other help, someone could be appointed to them.
They could be part of the Civil Service. End nepotism now.
