fuelexpmpsA Sunday Mirror investigation exposed millionaire Tory who claimed a staggering £5,822 in just 12 months – more than four times the average household energy bill.

The grasping hypocrisy of MPs claiming £200,000 in a year for their energy bills is today laid bare in a shocking Sunday Mirror investigation.

Top of the heap is a millionaire Tory who claimed a staggering £5,822 in just 12 months – more than four times the average household energy bill – to power and heat his £1million constituency home in a sprawling 31-acre estate.

Nadhim Zahawi and his wife run a riding school and he is a director of a number of firms. He also owns a £5million detached home in London.

The Stratford-upon-Avon MP even boasts on his website of his ­“achievements” on the Energy Bill Committee at improving “energy efficiency measures to homes and businesses”.

The MPs’ utility bills expenses are revealed in documents from the ­Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) between April 2012 and March 2013.

In total, 41 politicians claimed more than £1,000 for power and heat and a further 78 MPs more than £500 in the 12 months up to March this year.

A number of other Government ministers feature in the top 10 of the biggest claims according to IPSA records, which detail claims for MPs’ designated second homes which could be a London residence or constituency home.
