Taxpayers contributed £3.7m subsidising food and drink in Houses of Parliament last year - Daily Express

Anti-waste campaign group the Taxpayers’ Alliance described the continuing public subsidy for MPs, peers and parliamentary staff as “deeply regrettable”.

Harry Davis, campaign manager of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “It is irritating for people to know that their cash is still being used to subsidise the food and drink enjoyed by MPs and peers while the Government is still spending way beyond its means.

“The parliamentary authorities need to reform the catering arrangements so that hard-pressed taxpayers are no longer propping up what ought to be profitable outlets.

“Before he became prime minister, David Cameron declared that he would end these subsidies so it is deeply regrettable that seven years later and with him now out of office, the subsidies are still there.”
