Millionaire Tory minister Robert Jenrick repays false £122 expense claim

Millionaire Tory minister Robert Jenrick has repaid more than £120 after making a “false” expenses claim.

The Communities Secretary made a mileage claim for a round-trip from his home in the Midlands to Westminster.

However, he caught the train – and charged for both.


He submitted a claim for £122.40 for the 272-mile round-trip.

And he put in a £159 rail ticket receipt.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) investigated the double claim after a compalint by a constituent.

After a five month inquiry it concluded the claims were a “genuine mistake”.

A spokesman for Mr Jenrick said:

“As IPSA said, it was a genuine administrative error from his office and, when brought to his attention, it was repaid.”
