John Mann MP has backed Jeremy Corbyn's idea of wage caps and says it would be great for the Labour Party if its leader proposed a limit on lawmakers' salaries - including his own.
Speaking after Corbyn made a high-profile call to curb the earnings of the highest-paid, Mann told Julia Hartley-Brewer "I think a pay cap of under £100,000 would be good for the Labour Party.
"Jeremy Corbyn would be seen to be taking a lead in terms of social justice. It would be very good politics. We can impose this overnight."
Corbyn earns a reported salary of around £130,000, and Mann believes his credibility would increase if he were to take a cut himself.
"Jeremy would be taking a hit in the pocket, but this would make him more popular because he’d be walking the walk," the interviewee told Julia.
However Mann said he wasn't in favour of a wage cap for the rest of the country, saying "we shouldn’t discriminate in favour of the landed classes."
