Fat Cat Senior Secretary?

It transpires that Chris Grayling employs his wife, on a salary of £37.5K in her role as his “Senior Secretary”

This is intriguing as it is exactly the same as the proposed disposable income cap for Criminal Legal Aid means testing- perhaps this is even where that figure came from.

Perhaps more interestingly it would place her towards the top end of the salary scale for a Duty Solicitor. (This can be verified by reference to our extensive, previous research)

Essentially then Grayling pays his wife more than most of those he castigates as “Fat Cat Lawyers”.
