But the PM and Ms Rudd failed to get approval to pay staff up to £220,000 – incurring a £366,000 fine for the Home Office.

The PM broke the rules as Home Secretary in 2015 and 2016 when she paid panel members up to £565 a day.

Her successor Ms Rudd breached them again by appointing Prof Alexis Jay as inquiry chair on a £220,000 salary.

Former shadow chancellor Chris Leslie said: “We need an explanation from the PM.”

A Government spokesman said: “The Home Office have since reviewed appointment procedures to prevent further such breaches.”
