‘Angelic’ Salter Wants you to forget his own Expense Scandall

Salter has been saying he is an  ‘angel’  as he has not been caught with his snout in the parliamentary trough by the telegraph this summer.
But a couple of years ago our own ‘angelic’ politician was hauled before parliaments standards board and made to pay back thousands. martin salter booze

 

He was guilty of using parliamentary pre-paid envelopes for his own self publicising leaflets, and has apologised for doing so. As the costs of the mailings remain a proper charge on parliamentary allowances, he said he intends to reimburse the costs of the relevant stationery from the appropriate allowance for the current financial year.

  • Salter is Guilty :

  • 1. he posted to a number of constituents in pre-paid House of Commons envelopes, a breach of the Stationery and Postage Rules;

  • 2. the report’s imprint did not state that it had been funded from Mr Salter’s Parliamentary allowances; and

  • 3. the report promoted the re-election of a councillor in the May 2007 local elections by featuring a picture of him.
