My travel and accommodation expenses for April 2011 were as follows:

Hotels – I stayed 3 nights in hotels in London with a total cost of £255, average cost £85 per night compared to a limit of £130. This low average was due to using a loyalty offer for free nights.

Train fares – I made 2 return journeys from East Midlands Parkway to London with total cost of £155, average return journey cost of £78. The maximum claim per return  journey under the rules is £138. The journeys were all standard class.

Tube fares – £6

Car parking at East Midlands parkway station – £18 plus £30 in relation to visits to Chesterfield on the police parliamentary scheme.

My mileage claim was £120 for 301 miles.

The full details of the claims will be published by IPSA in due course
