SIR Graham Brady, MP for Altrincham and Sale West, is facing questions about a job which paid him the equivalent of £800 an hour.

The advisory role for a management consultancy firm, which has no website and is owned by a constituent, paid him a total of £10,000 for around 12 hours of work, The Guardian reported.

But Sir Graham – chairman of the Conservatives’ 1922 Committee –  said he has meticulously stuck to the rules.

He declared the role before a committee meeting to discuss Boris Johnson’s plans to crack down on second jobs.

Labour MPs are now calling for Sir Graham to refer himself to the parliamentary commissioner for guidance on how to declare the nature of the business he was advising on.

Angela Rayner, Ashton-under-Lyne MP and deputy leader of the Labour Party, tweeted: "A senior Conservative MP is paid £10,000 a year for 12 hours' work in his second job.

"But nobody knows what [the firm] does, so how can his constituents and the public know what he is doing or whether there is a conflict of interest?"

Trafford's Labour councillors are also concerned.

Cllr Ben Hartley, of Ashton on Mersey Ward, tweeted: "Some serious questions for ⁦Sir Graham Brady to answer here.

"Wish I had a close personal friend who paid me £800 an hour for occasional advice.

"Will he be transparent with people of Altrincham and Sale West what the nature of this second job is?"

Cllr Mike Freeman, of Sale Moor Ward, replied: "Not holding my breath."

But the 1922 Committee chairman told The Guardian that the company belongs to a ‘close personal friend’ who he was paid to advise on communication and marketing matters.

Sir Graham said: "There is nothing opaque in this, I have made a full declaration and have always been scrupulous in following not just the letter but the spirit of the MPs’ Code of Conduct."
