Cap all MP expenses

Additional Information

To cap the amount all MPs spend as part of their expenses. Some MPs expenses are higher than others and excuses are made on reasons why. It should be capped to no more than £80000 per year to pay for staff etc.

MPs should not be able to claim for food as all workers throughout the country pay for their own food throughout the day they work.
Travelling expenses should be the same as workers 40p per mile, this should be documented ie reason for visit, to and from and the distance. Air flights to places MPs should get basic air travel if they wish to up grade it should be paid by themselves.
MPs should only have staff that are needed ie 1 admin and 1 Personal assistant and their wages should be what an average person doing the same job.
