Foreign Trips

MPs are able to go on foreign delegations and I was invited on many, many foreign trips after first being elected in May 2010. I did not go on any of these trips which either fell during Parliamentary sitting time and/or were at the taxpayer’s expense.

I have however gone on three delegations in the nine years I have been the MP for Northampton North. None of these trips were at the taxpayers’ expense and all of them were when Parliament was not sitting and no votes were expected.
