The Evening Mail has reported on Friday 11th September that Selly Oak Labour MP has been named among those who failed to pay back expenses claims they should never have made.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) has revealedSteve McCabe, MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, has ignored calls to stump up the cash despite repeated calls for repayment.
IPSA says it was forced to write off a total of £2,105.43 last year (2014-15) after 26 MPs failed to settle up.
In response to the list Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “These MPs and former MPs today named as owing money to IPSA must repay their debts immediately.
“The lesson of the MPs’ expenses scandal was surely that the public rightly expect the very highest standards of probity and integrity when it comes to politicians making claims on the taxpayer.”
