Alex Salmond Takes The High Road To Westminster

by | 27th, July 2007

SCOTLAND’S First Minister, Alex Salmond, is claiming for £22,000 expenses for living in London, to the dismay of Scottish MPs.

Salmond stayed away from Westminster for nearly three months after his election as Holyrod but he is still claiming the full additional cost allowance.

The Lib Dems’ Alistair Carmichael says: “His constituents will expect, if he turns up in London only on high days and Edinburgh holidays, that will be reflected in much lower expenses.”
