SNP Trio Top Parliamentary Expenses List with Whopping £760k Bill

The three MPs with the highest expenses claims are all SNP politicians, the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority shows.

In the 2018-19 fiscal year, Chris Law, Ian Blackford and Brendan O’Hara all claimed a combined total of over £760,000 in expenses from the UK Parliament.

Chris Law, a staunch critic of the UK’s benefit system, claimed a total of £259,866.85 in expenses, his highest expenditures being staffing (£146,057.82), travel (£41,351.79) office costs (£30,320.75) and accommodation (£23,138.77). Law previously operated a financial advice business in Dundee.

SNP leader in the Commons Ian Blackford claimed £256,780.73, again, mainly in staffing (£149,863.38), travel (£45,533.17), office costs (£37.867.66) and accommodation (£22,775.73). Blackford previously worked as an investment banker at Deutsche Bank.

Blackford, a vocal opponent of UK austerity, also spent over £1,000 on newspapers, a far higher figure than that of his colleagues. Perhaps he should stick to free blogs like The Backbencher!

Number three on the list of big claimers is Brendan O’Hara, a successful TV producer, claiming £247,895.01. This comprised £152,925.61 on staff, £28,458.34 on accommodation (both of which higher than his colleagues above), £44,580.17 on travel and a £21,930.89 office spend.
