(2009) Conservative Leader David Cameron M.P. -PARASITE AND SUPPORTER OF COMMUNISTS

David Cameron MP, the Conservative leader, is to repay almost £1,000 claimed on Parliamentary expenses after reviewing his claims over recent weeks.

The Tory leader had already announced his intention to pay back £680 he claimed towards repairs at his second home in Oxfordshire.

But on Thursday he wrote to the Commons Fees Office volunteering the repayment of £947.29 – including the £680 for repairs – after identifying a series of over-claims.

“Over the last few weeks, I have carefully gone through the claims I have made against the Additional Costs Allowance (ACA) since 2004,” he wrote in a letter to Terry Bird, the Commons’ director of operations.

“This has brought to light a number of points. I would like to make clear that these were discovered as a result of a thorough review by my office, not as a result of media inquiries.”

The additional amounts for which he is reimbursing the Fees Office include:

:: £218.91 in mortgage over-claims resulting from “an inadvertent administrative error” arising from changes to his home loan arrangements;

:: £9 he was over-compensated for on an electricity and gas bill;

:: £10 too much he received for a researcher’s phone bill;

:: £29.38 he claimed towards a banner on his website he was subsequently asked by the Commons to take down.
