RUTLAND and Melton's MP Alan Duncan apparently claimed for the same piece of furniture twice, according to The Times.
They said that Mr Duncan submitted the claim for a £267.90 table top in his constituency twice - first in November 2004 and again the following month. Mr Duncan has apparently pledged to pay back any money wrongly received.and is quoted as admitting a mistake.
This is on top of the revelations of Mr Duncan's gardening bills.

I must just add my piece in mitigation though. I recently wrote to Alan Duncan (actually, I emailed) with a couple of problems I had about local amenities, and I received a very prompt reply and evidence that he is actively working on the problems. So,although I don't agree with the over the top expenses claims, and I'm not a Tory voter, I must say that he's been a very good constituency MP as far as I am concerned - and MAYBE the table really was a mistake!
