To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, pursuant to the Answer of 18 May 2021 to Question 3021, who was the private supplier responsible for the works funded personally by the Prime Minister.
7 June 2021
Works funded personally by the Prime Minister were contracted privately; there has been no cost to taxpayers.
Under successive administrations, it has been the case that spending funded personally by the incumbent Prime Minister is a private matter.
In the same way, MPs’ expenses which are funded by taxpayers are made public and rightly subject to public scrutiny; however, how Hon. Members spend their earned income is a private matter for them.
