A Wealden MP and former energy minister has accepted a lucrative second job as a consultant at a major oil trading firm.

Wealden MP Charles Hendry has been added to the payroll at Vitol – a Swiss-based but Dutch-owned energy trading company – in a role that will earn him £60,000 a year.

The sum is almost as much as his parliamentary salary, despite his consultant role taking up just one-and-a-half days of work per month.
