Truss could also benefit from a £115,000 annual salary, according to The Mirror.

The £115,000 annual salary, which is available to all ex-prime ministers, covers their’special role in public life,’ as well as the office and secretarial costs associated with a post-Downing Street world, but it does not cover personal expenses.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has urged her to reject the expected annual salary, questioning Ms Truss’s eligibility for the Public Duties Cost Allowance (PDCA) after such a brief tenure in No.10.

However, government officials told The Mirror that there is no minimum period of service required for a PM to be eligible for the lifelong annual payment, citing previous leaders such as Tony Blair and Sir John Major, who both claimed the full annual salary payment of £115,000.

Gordon Brown requested £114,802, David Cameron requested £111,457, and Boris Johnson will reportedly claim the payment if he does not return to No. 10.

‘She should turn it down,’ Sir Keir told ITV. That, I believe, is the correct course of action.

‘She’s served 44 days in office; she’s not really entitled to it; she should decline and decline.’

MP Christine Jardine agreed, adding that doing so would “leave a bitter taste in the mouths of millions struggling with spiraling bills.”

‘Truss’ legacy is an economic disaster, which the Conservatives are forcing taxpayers to pay for,’ she added.

‘It would be unconscionable for Truss to walk off into the sunset with a potentially six-figure dividend while leaving the British people to suffer.’
