The TPA’s analysis of today’s expense claim figures for MPs ranks the main Parties by the average amount claimed per MP in expenses. Travel expenses are excluded given the different geographic spread of the Parties.
Matthew Elliott, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“Conservative MPs should be proud that their average expenses are lower than the other political parties. However, their expense claims have still gone up by around 7 per cent, far more than inflation, so there is still room for improvement. Plaid Cymru MPs should go to the back of the class.”
