A sample monthly expenses form, (page 1 of 2) we have redacted the Cllrs name.

If ever there was a system open for potential abuse then this is it.

Why did this Cllr have to attend HQ on 17th June 2015, no reason given on the form submitted, yet it has been signed as checked, and has a second signature approving the claim.

This Cllr claims 8 miles return from their home to HQ, unfortunately the AA say it is only 5.6 miles return.
The Cllr claims 14 miles return from their home to Neilston, unfortunately the AA say it is only 9.4 miles return.
The Cllr claims 8 miles return from their home to Barrhead, unfortunately the AA say it is only 7.2 miles return. (anything under 0.5 is reduced to the lower point)

The last form that we examined there was that of Charlie Gilbert and we will continue through the remainder.

Looking at the other members of that group Cllr Miller, Swift and Wallace have never made travel claims for anything inside East Renfrewshire.

Neither independent Ccllrs have made travel claims for anything inside East Ren, Ccllrs Robertson and Devlin.

We have submitted a review request which centres around taxi claims, we will report fully when we have received a reply.

We can guarantee that this will make for interesting reading come the new year.
