2004/05 (ranking out of 659) - £9,537 (570th)
2003/04 (ranking out of 658) - £10,524 (557th)

2001/02 (ranking out of 657) - £9,232 (575th)
The list of what counts as an additional cost is here
How has yours done? can you top trump me? Have a look here for the 2006/7 breakdown.
The maximum claim per year is £22,100 and doubtless the MPs will claim that the 'John Lewis list' details the maximum they can claim and the figures should not be used to beat them around the head. So the number of members claiming between £20,000 and the maximum...388 by my count! 184 of those claimed the maximum.
