    In a way, being 71st most expensive doesnt sound too bad, but when you consider how close Rosie D’s constituency is to London, it really seems like a bad record I am afraid. None of the Kent mps should be in the top half of expense claimers, I would have thought.

    Can we get a breakdown of recipients??

    I agree a breakdown of expenditure would be very helpful. This would show how much was being spent on e.g. office and staff costs in order to provide support and advice to constituents. Also, are these expenses subject to independent audit to ensure that taxpayers are not being ripped off?
