Cains Advocates was until quite recently paying the Rt Hon. Mark Field MP, since June 2017 appointed Foreign Office Minister, the sum of £40,000 per annum over and above his parliamentary salary. How many other MPs get a consultancy payment from Isle of Man law firms? Details can be found on line from the register of members’ interests. The Rt Hon Mark Field MP states that Cains paid him £10,000 every quarter to a total of £40,000 pa for a commitment of 120 hours; this for six years. The current edition of “Private Eye” 17th-30th November 2017 page 11 states that in July he was given a £40,000 “severance package”. Wonder what was in the package? Sort of “Lucky Bag” for grown-ups perhaps? The Rt Hon Mark Field MP’s duties towards Cains are described as, “ international strategy, ambassadorial work, and advising on government and parliamentary aspects of financial services” One of his duties as Foreign Office minister is described as “economic diplomacy”. Methinks an open Island register of beneficial ownership and interests may yet be some way off.
