Shameless Tory Philip Davies , who blocked a bid to give carers free parking at hospitals , charges his own parking fees to the taxpayer.The backbencher sabotaged a Labour bill, which would have scrapped the controversial fees, with a lengthy speech in the Commons.
He droned on for 90 minutes, leaving no time for MPs to vote.
The Shipley MP claimed £11.67 for parking in 2014-15 and £16 in 2013-14.
Davies, who was criticised last week after calling for a debate on ‘International Men’s Day’, claimed £7 for parking while attending the Bradford District Inspirational Women Awards.
Some of the charges were for as little as £1.
Davies also claimed parking fees for meetings with local councillors and constituents.
