Nick strongly believes that MPs should spend taxpayers' money with great care and only claim expenses when absolutely necessary. He also believes the public has a right to know how these funds are spent. Expenses should be reasonable and they should be audited. Nick has always voted for full transparency and tougher rules, and strongly supports the lead taken by David Cameron to clean up the entire system.
Nick does not claim any expenses for his home in Arundel. Until the 2010 election, he claimed for mortgage interest, but he has never claimed for household items, insurance or council tax. He has never claimed personally for food, or for travel expenses for family members.
