Here we go again. The expenses system was tightened up to stop MPs fleecing the public so they find another way to do it!
“Dozens of MPs are claiming taxpayer-funded expenses to rent homes or stay in hotel rooms in London while letting out property they own nearby”: click here for the Daily Mail article
Chris Bryant is apparently making £2K pm but they are “compelled” to rent a separate flat as they can’t claim their mortgage interest (but they can claim the rent)!
If these 46 MPs sold these rented flats (which were bought with the generous handout from the tax payer) it would add 46 more properties to the London market in one fell swoop. 46 more than Croydon’s Brick X Brick housing development arm since 2015. Or could take 46 families of the housing waiting list.
