Whilst our former Secretary of State for Wales, etc has not got his troubles to seek, our own MPs may have. It seems that despite a regulation that requires MPs assistants to register their interests, very few have. Ian Paisley Senior and Sylvia Hermon’s assistants have been registered (one is a Researcher for the “Imperial Society of Knights Bachelor”).
