Labour Members of the European Parliament have led the way in providing increased transparency on their spending of parliamentary allowances. Labour MEPs must also publish on their websites a breakdown of how their office allowance is spent, a list of staff names and job titles, including whether they employ any family members and details of travel and subsistence allowance claimed.
Linda currently employs three full-time members of staff and three part-time members of staff and contributes to a joint member of staff with other Labour MEPs in Brussels.
