TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to Matt Hancock’s plans to appear on I’m a Celebrity

For immediate release


Responding to news that Matt Hancock is due to appear on the latest series of I’m a Celebrity, Joe Ventre of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Matt Hancock’s plans to wriggle out of his responsibilities are shameful. 

“This grubby spectacle will leave a bad taste in the mouths of his constituents, who will have no one representing them for the fortnight he is off pursuing his TV career. 

“Hancock shouldn’t be entitled to a penny of taxpayers’ money in salary or expenses while he’s living it large in the jungle.”
