MPs expense scandal: Paul Goggins

Our ongoing look into the shed angle of the MPs expense scandal focuses today on Paul Goggins, MP for Wythenshawe and Sale East. According to the Manchester Evening News he claimed £300 for a shed at his home in Salford in 2005 commenting: “It was a replacement for a shed that had been there for donkey’s years. I replaced it with a fairly modest one.” In total, he spent £690 on his garden in November 2005 which included the £300 shed, £108 on skip hire, and £40 on turf.

    Can't we just build a student accommodation block somewhere in London and make them all live there when they have to attend Parliament?
