It wouldn’t be the first time an MP has been accused of sleeping on the job but for one Conservative minister he was excused for doing so while in Brent.
Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, enjoyed a ‘lie-down’ while visiting a Savoir Beds in Willesden Junction.
The company, which employs 80 staff, makes bespokes beds ranging from £10,000 to £125,000.
During his tour to understand how local businesses operate on a global level and impact the economy, Mr Vaizey took the opportunity to have a little rest.
He said: “It’s like sleeping on air; I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
