£6000 Energy bills for Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi's second home
GRASPING MPs provoked anger yesterday for claiming hundreds of thousands of pounds to cover the cost of their energy bills on their second homes which was all within the rules.
Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi claimed the most, with a bill of £5,822.27 to cover electricity and heating oil at his Warwickshire second home.
Ex-Labour Cabinet minister Peter Hain claimed £4,571 on his second home in his South Wales constituency.
Dame Margaret Beckett claimed £3,960 for gas and electricity on her constituency home.
Following the latest round of price hikes, average bills for householders across the UK will rise to £1,465.
