Mr Andrew Mackay and Ms Julie Kirkbride - Standards and Privileges Committee Contents

27.  E-mail from Rt Hon Andrew Mackay to the Commissioner, 9 June 2010

I appreciated the opportunity to further answer your queries at today's meeting.

You will recall you questioned the legitimacy of a Member claiming financial support from the taxpayer for both his homes. It occurs to me you may wish to consider press reports stating that senior Ministers claimed ACA whilst also living in "grace and favour" accommodation entirely funded by the taxpayer. It appears that in some cases there was "flipping" and in others the "third" home was sold. As a consequence in each case the taxpayer was funding both homes.
