Scottish First Minister was at the Hosue of Commons six times and voted 18 times since he took up his job in May. Yet Mr Salmond has claimed £130,364.33 in expenses since April last year. Mr Salmond is also the MP for Banff and Buchan.
The figures show that Mr Salmond claimed £13,988.98 renting a flat and £84,664.94 for staff. Incidental expenses were £18,591.34, and travel expenses £1,480.80. He claimed £2,221.84 under the communication allowance. £1,017.37 for stationery, £4,768.25 for postage and £1,255.46 for computing.
Based on his six visits, his overnight stays cost the public £2,333 a night. A standard room in the Ritz would have been eight times less expensive!
