IPSA expenses Barclaycard

The full MP expenses for 2014/15 are out. This year IPSA has included a list of MPs who have run up bad debts to the taxpayer through over-claimed/ineligible expense claims — including via publicly-funded corporate Barclaycards.

  • 26 MPs or former MPs have sums outstanding
  • 13 Tory MPs owe £953.43
  • 12 Labour MPs owe £942.82
  • One Lib Dem owes £209.18
