Danczuk Told to Pay Back £11,500

The report by IPSA’s compliance officer into Simon Danczuk’s expenses finds:

The evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that the MP obtained an increase to his Accommodation Expenditure budget by claiming dependant uplifts for his two oldest children for a period of over three years, when, at no point were either of the children routinely resident. The Compliance Officer must also conclude that this was done knowing that there was no reasonable prospect of the children staying at the accommodation. The total claimed by the MP in breach of the Scheme and which he is required to repay is £11,583.20.

Simon says:

“I hold my hands up and admit that this was an error on my part.”
