Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, has returned money claimed for a Remembrance Day wreath after the expenses were questioned by the media.
Champion broke IPSA rules on claiming for the wreath which isn’t allowable under Parliamentary expenses. Champion has said that following the media reports she will be returning the £17 expenses claim next week.
In an interview with The Sun the Tax-Payer’s Alliance said:
“Trying to put the bill on somebody else to honour our servicemen and women is downright low.”
Champion has not made a statement or apology on her Twitter account or on her web-site relating to the claim.
