In response to the row over his 3p expense claim, a spokesperson for Dr Liam Fox said:
The IPSA guidance states that: MPs may claim for Travel and Subsistence Expenditure for journeys which are necessary for the performance of their parliamentary functions¹. In this case the claim relates to category C: ‘travel within the constituency or within 20 miles of the constituency boundary.
Dr Fox provides the exact distance, in miles, travelled to and from each of his constituency engagements based on the post code, as IPSA requires.
Where Dr Fox has a full day of constituency engagements back to back, the mileage is worked out methodically from one location to the next, with intention of ensuring full transparency.
Dr Fox usually submits his mileage claims on a two-monthly basis whereby IPSA determines the value per mile and thus the cumulative value of the claim.
Individual claims are not made in the way suggested by the newspaper stories which clearly intend to mislead. Overall, Dr Fox’s travel spend is one of the lowest, 421st on the list of MP’s.
The campaign group The Taxpayers' Alliance has criticised North Somerset MP Liam Fox after it emerged that he claimed 3 pence in expenses for a car of journey of under 100 metres.
The former defence secretary made another 15 claims of under 1 pound for car travel in the past financial year. Mr Fox has said that all his expenses obey current parliamentary rules, but campaign group
Eleanor McGrath from The Taxpayers Alliance think the public will question why such small claims were made.
Three young men have agreed to pay for a new tree to be planted, after sawing one down in a park in Clevedon so that they could burn it on the beach.Police were called to Alexandra Park in the early hours of 14th July and caught the offenders carrying the tree out of the park.
The three offenders - a 16-year-old boy from Yatton, an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old man both from Clevedon - have agreed to pay £336 between them to cover the cost of planting a new tree.
PC Ross Kirby based at Nailsea Police Station said: "This is an example of silly antics on a hot night going wrong. The lads involved were bored and thought it would be fun to cut down a tree, but didn't think about how this would affect the park and the people who use it.
"As well as criminal damage, their actions were anti-social and upsetting to local people.
"By dealing with the offenders through a community resolution we have made them pay for their crime, to the satisfaction of the council and other people involved, but have kept them out of the criminal justice system, which gives them a chance at a clean slate."
Police are appealing for help to find a missing woman from North Somerset.
