Third Quarter MPs expenses

The PM and the Speaker have released summaries of expenses for the third quarter of this year.

I’ve put them into Excel so I can analyse them at some length. Some tidbits for now for MPs:

  • Highest Wgtn Accom – Maryan Street $8,703 for quarter
  • Highest Out of Wgtn Accom – Hone Harawira – $3,978
  • Highest Air Travel – Phil Goff on $29,166 and Ross Robertson on $25,742. That is $2,000 a week for Robertson so must include some international travel
  • Highest Surface Travel – Hone Harawira $19,942

And for Ministers

  • Highest Wgtn Accom – Georgina te Heuheu – $12,833
  • Highest Out of Wgtn Accom – John Carter – $5,661
  • Highest Domestic Air Travel – Kate Wilkinson – $16,420
  • Highest Surface Travel – John Key- $81,079 (that is an apportionment of VIP Transport costs – most of which are fixed not marginal)
  • Highest International Travel – Tim Groser – $120,235

Average expenses per Party (excludes Ministers)

  1. ACT $15,501
  2. Green $18,358
  3. National $18,954
  4. Labour $20,422
  5. Progressive $27,533
  6. Maori $35,549

More analysis to come.
