Member of Parliament expenses are a hot topic in the UK, and my MP raised eyebrows with large claims for rented accommodation, even though they live in a constituency close to Parliament. This made me wonder if the outrage was justified.
The outcome? The Gravy Train. Now armed with data, the question is: How does your MP’s spending compare?
Data is supplied by
- UK Parliament [https://www.parliament.uk/]
- Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority [https://www.theipsa.org.uk/]
Over 2 million expense records form the basis of the analysis and the underlying database.
