    Tory MP reveals grim reality of living on just £82,000 as he asks for payrise

    A Conservative has spoken out about the struggles of living on an MP’s salary on the day Universal Credit has been cut for the most vulnerable in the country.

    Sir Peter Bottomley, the ‘Father of the House’ as the MP in the Commons with the longest continuous service, called it ‘desperately difficult’ for many of his colleagues.

    His comments come as Universal Credit cuts officially start today, after the Government decided to remove the £20-a-week uplift which was introduced during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Charity Save the Children warned this will leave tens of thousands of children facing a cold and hungry winter.
