    Thank you very much for this link. Wow, just wow some of these amounts just beggar belief. I see the afore mentioned Ben Bradley figures in the higher ones – £50,000+ How many school dinners would that provide in his constituency. Angela Rayner was too understated and polite, the whole lot of them are scum.

    SNP have six members in the top 10 claimers (including the top four), Cons two, LibDems and Labour one each. Labour’s topmost being Peter Dore tith GBP80,000. The claims are considered for legitimacy by IPSA and, of course, have no relevance in this issue.

      Of course their claims are relevant to the issue. Expenses claims include meals. Didn’t you know that?

        Just to clarify, according to Fullfact, MPs can claim twenty-five pounds in food expenses per night if staying outside London or their constituency as part of their parliamentary activities. This does not include alcohol. It would seem, therefore, there would be no entitlement on most days and obviously not when the House is in recess, as it is this half-term week.

        I did reply to you on your claim that MPs meals are included in expenses but it seems to have slipped through the net, at least I hope that is the reason it has not appeared. There looks to be some confusion in social media on this issue and I sought to explain that, according to Fullfact, MPs can claim twenty-five pounds in food expenses per night if staying outside London or their constituency as part of their parliamentary activities. This does not include expenditure on alcohol.
        I would suggest, therefore, when attending the House, on Conference and during periods of recess no such claims would be admissable. I hope this clarifies matters.
