Ian Clement claimed for “expenses paid” trips

Ian Clement, former leader of Bexley Council, has been ordered to repay more than £2000 which he claimed in expenses for trips which had already been paid for.

From the Local Government Chronicle:

Bexley LBC had paid for Ian Clement’s accommodation at a BT conference in the United States, which brought together politicians, academics and businessmen.

More than half of the £2,087.85 the council has asked to be paid back was spent on this trip.

Mr Clement, who was council leader between May 2006 and May 2008, claimed £1,270.50 in overnight subsistence allowances for the trip.

Mr Clement has previously paid back £1,220 he spent on the council card which was found to have funded personal expenditure.

In June, Mr Clement resigned as Deputy Mayor of London following the misuse of his corporate credit card. Shortly afterwards, his local Conservative Association terminated his membership.

  • Helen,

    Can you please advise if Lord Rennard has repaid the taxpayer the £ 41,000 he claimed for his second home?
    You will no doubt remember the reports of Lord Rennards second home claims (London house and holiday flat in Eastbourne) in the Sunday papers earlier this year and then Nick Clegg’s ‘ton of bricks’ TV interview.
    Can you please update us on what action has been taken and what plans there are for the money to be reimbursed.
    Believe you will agree that this is a far more significant amount than the £ 2,000 you highlight in your above article.

  • Helen,

    Looking forward to receiving your reply.
    Did you think that people had forgotten about it?

  • Any chance of a reply Helen or are you just too embarrassed?
