Expenses In West Berkshire

Following a recent report of the impact of the expenses scandal on the local political scene Reading List raised questions of the identity of the individual banned from making future claims for first-class rail travel.

Speaking on behalf of West Berkshire Council Sue Broughton confirmed by email that "the councillor in question was Councillor Alan Law."

Cllr Alan Law represents Basildon ward for the Conservative party.

The full list of allowances claimed by West Berkshire councillors can be found here.

Birch Copse's Cllr Joe Mooney (Con) was the highest overall claimant, claiming £2,830.60 additional expenses for the 12 period covering the financial year from April 1st 2008 to March 31st 2009.

13 of West Berkshire's 52 councillors did not claim any additional expenses.
