Laird the Most Expensive Peer in Lords

The Belfast Telegraph reports that Lord Laird has been named as the most expensive peer in the House of Lords, claiming not only £74,000 in expenses during 2008-09 but costing the taxpayer over £100,000 in parliamentary questions (the general cost of which is an issue previously raised by the Blether Region).

Laird had already been criticised for claiming for taxis from Belfast to Derry and Dublin when chairman of the Ulster-Scots Agency.
