A LABOUR MP received £240 an hour from taxpayers’ money to teach NHS workers leadership.
Key Jeremy Corbyn ally Naz Shah bagged almost £4,800 for the workshops.
The fees of the MP, suspended by Labour in an anti-Semitism row two years ago, were listed in Parliament’s register of members’ financial interests.
They include £1,200 for two sessions on leadership in February last year. It was for five hours’ work including preparation, a £240 hourly rate plus travel and accommodation costs. Ms Shah got £600 for two and a half hours weeks later and £600 last November.

She listed the payments under Health Education England and the NHS Leadership Academy.
Her payments this year included four sessions totalling £2,400. Ms Shah, who earns £77,379 as an MP, gave the workshops before becoming shadow equalities minister. A spokesperson for her said she received “normal rates”. In 2017 she accused the Governmenmt of not “fully funding” the NHS.
Taxpayers’ Alliance’s Ben Ramanauskas said: “She should have offered her services pro-bono rather than leeching off hard-working taxpayers. It’s disappointing health budget money was taken for ‘leadership training’.”
