MP Ed Miliband was paid £500 per show when he covered for Jeremy Vine at BBC Radio 2 recently.
The Doncaster North Member of Parliment declared the amount of £2,500 for the work via the Register of Members’ Interests. He says he worked for approx 30 hours from 19th June to 23rd June 2017.
One of his first topics on the cover show was about the way toilets flush.
A week later, whilst Jeremy Vine took the second week off, Iain Duncan Smith hosted the lunchtime phone-in but details of his payment have not yet been made public.
