EXPENSES claims by Jamie Stone MP totalled almost £200,000 last year, according to figures released by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).

Mr Stone, who represents Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, claimed £199,968 in 2018-2019.

The figure broke down into: Office – £19,333; staff – £132,520; accommodation – £21,115; travel – £27,000.

This compares with Inverness MPs Ian Blackford, who claimed £252,944, and Drew Hendry who claimed £227,092.

This year is the 11th anniversary of the MPs’ expenses scandal that led to IPSA’s creation.
