Former Conservative ministers will get redundancy benefits totaling more than £410,000, despite the fact that some of them held their positions for only a few short weeks.
Former Cabinet members like Dominic Raab will receive £16, 876, while Alex Chalk, the former solicitor general, will receive $14,491. Boris Johnson will receive a golden farewell of £18, 860.
Despite serving for only 63 days as a junior transport minister, Karl McCartney will collect £5,593. He was only hired toward the end of Mr. Johnson’s administration, when the then-prime minister was scrambling to fill the vacancies left by a widespread walkout in his ministerial team.
Those leaving office are entitled to 25% of the yearly income they received while in that position, per the Ministerial and Other Pensions and Salaries Act of 1991.
Last night, the Liberal Democrats urged Mr. Johnson and other departing ministers to refuse their redundancy payments so that the money could instead be utilised to aid needy families.
