The number of MPs paid as consultants to PR firms is down by almost one

third from 23 to 16, according to an analysis by the Association of

Professional Political Consultants of the Register of Member’s

Interests, published on Tuesday.



The register is the first to include details of MP’s remuneration,

although this applies only to work which relates specifically to their

position as MPs and many have chosen to declare only part of their

earnings.



Among the new entries is that of Sir Patrick McNair-Wilson, a partner in

Ferret PR and Allan Stewart, now PR and public affairs consultant to

Michael Kelly Associates.



Firms which have severed their links include Fleishman-Hillard with

Charles Hendry, Ludgate Laud with Michael Colvin and Shandwick with

David Mellor.
