MPs’ expense claims published

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has published its second round of reports regarding MPs’ expenses, available from today.

The reports are to be released every two months and outline the expense claims that have been made by all 650 MPs in Westminster.

Duncan is listed among those who claimed expenses in September and October, for start-up costs since his election in May for his constituency office, including rent and day-to-day running costs and for his rented London accommodation. Between May and 31st October, this amounted to £10,720.10.

The expenses system received an overhaul last spring to ensure that there are stricter budgets and checks and balances in place for the claiming of expenses.

Duncan said:

“I welcome the increased transparency of parliamentary expenses. I do my best to keep my claims for the costs of my parliamentary work low.

“I hope that my constituents will consider that amongst Members of Parliament I offer good value for money in the work that I do.”
