ELLESMERE Port & Neston MP Andrew Miller claimed nearly £147,000 in expenses between April 2007 and March 2008.
Parliamentary figures provide details of what Mr Miller claimed under the House of Commons’ Members’ Allowance Expenditure.
Of the £147,802 expenses, it includes £17,817 (second home), £16,407 (office), £84,011 (staff), £934 (stationary), £2,993 (stationary associated postage), £1,340 (IT) and £6,095 (communications)
Travel expenses included £2,391 (car), £11,243 (rail) and £818 (spouse).
Mr Miller has published expense forms, bill statements and invoices on his personal website, and says he is in the process of releasing further details from previous years.
He says he has ‘no problem’ releasing details of his expenses and has a number of box files in his loft so is able to ‘account for just about every penny I have spent.’
Meanwhile, Ben Chapman last week became the first Labour MP to quit Westminster over the expenses scandal.
The Wirral South MP has confirmed he will not stand again at the next general election.
It was reported Mr Chapman had reclaimed the interest payments on the full value of a mortgage despite paying off £295,000 of the loan.
The ‘phantom mortgage’ meant he benefited by £15,000 over a period of 10 months.
He was given permission to do this by the House of Commons fees office.
The 68-year-old, who has continued to declare his innocence following his resignation, said: “After reflecting on the harm done to my local party, as well as to my family and friends, I decided that I will be standing down at the next election.”
