Want to Know Where Your Tax is Going?
COMMONS Speaker Michael Martin's London home has had more than £700,000 spent on it since he moved in, it was revealed last night. The cash went on items such as furniture, art and air conditioning for the grace and favour official residence. An additional £992,000 was spent on Speaker's Garden, although most of that went on improving security in the wake of 9/11.(Oh Good ! I was getting concerned for a moment) The spending spree was revealed last night as he faced pressure over his review of MPs' expenses. Martin, Labour MP for Glasgow North East, was elected Speaker in 2000. These are Figures released under the Freedom of Information Act . This Squeaker is doing OK. Is't he ?
