(March 2009) Twenty More Outer-London MPs profit from the McNulty Wheeze

At least 20 other MPs have been caught in the 'McNulty Triangle' by claiming allowances for running second homes within easy commuting distance of the House of Commons.

The 'name and shame' list of MPs with outer-London seats who have claimed thousands of pounds in allowances has provoked outrage among their colleagues, particularly those with inner-city London seats who are barred under the rules from making similar claims.

The list of 20 shows that Tony McNulty is nowhere near the worst expenses claimer, coming a mere 16th in the list. McNulty, the MP for Harrow East, has claimed £52,598 in additional cost allowances on his parents' house in Harrow, even though he lives with his wife Christine Gilbert in Hammersmith.
