�40k of expenses for Crow Country MPs
MPS for Royston and South Cambs claimed �41,908 worth of expenses in the past financial year.
Royston’s representative, Oliver Heald, received �21,552 and Andrew Lansley, South Cambs MP and health secretary, got �20,356 between last April and March.
Mr Heald claimed �538 for an iPad for parliamentary use and was also compensated for office supplies and �165 worth of food in parliament.
A new independent system replaced the previous expenses mechanism in April last year and Mr Heald praised its transparency.
