MP successfully claims 3p from us the Tax Payers!!
BBC News - Liam Fox MP claims 3p for 100m car trip, documents show
When I saw the headline I thought it was 3p for 100 miles but no!
Nice work if you can get it!

To play devils advocate here, but when I was working for Lancs CC to claim any mileage back, we had to break down each journey to individual legs i.e from point a to point b, then point b to point c, regardless of how short that leg is.
This is what it looks like has happened here, especially as it was his admin staff filling out the form as required.

Again same as Dos Box, I claimed for everything I was entitled to, my pay was bad and I needed all the help i could get. Some people couldn't be bothered, I'm a tight arse!

Well if I'm travelling on behalf of my employer I claim all that I'm entitled to. I don't think it would be fair of me to criticise others for doing the same.

Yep another non-story. Unfortunately the BBC seem to be employing jounalists who should really be at the Sun/Sport. Shame really as in some ways the BBC is second to none.

I guess because he got in hot water previously with expenses they just latched on about this one.
