I’ve been trawling through the expenses of my MP, Angela Watkinson. MPs had the option to go through expenses and edit them before publication. Here, it would appear the Hon. Member for Upminster claimed for a “tax accountant” but this has been crossed through. Has it been paid back again? Update: This means it was blocked by the fees office.
Alistair Darling got into trouble for claiming for an accountant but notably, Watkinson’s £250.00 claim is smaller than his claim of £1,400.
