MPs say they are good value for money after details of expenses published
MPs insisted they remained good value for money as the latest annual expenses price tag for the region's representatives edged up 1.2 per cent to £2.32million.
Last year's rise in expenses costs by the region's MPs combined was slightly less than the national increase. Across the United Kingdom MPs spent a combined total of £105.9million in 2014/15 – a rise of 1.6 per cent.
The totals do not include MPs' basic salary, which was set at £67,000 but recently rose to £74,000 per year.
Waveney MP Peter Aldous, who does not claim any travel costs between his Suffolk constituency and London, claimed just £1,209 for travel over the last five years.
Suffolk Coastal MP Therese Coffey (pictured above) said of her claims: 'My expenses are publicly available on the IPSA website.
