The MPs' expenses crisis was the biggest scandal to hit modern British politics. It did immense damage to people's faith in politics, parliament and MPs. As a parliamentary candidate, I pledged that if elected I would post details of my expense claims online, every month. I also promised I would not claim expenses without a receipt or invoice.

I'm delighted that on this part of the website I can keep to the promises I made and publish all my expense claims. I hope that this will help to start re-build trust in politics and parliament, and give people confidence in their new MP.

To aid transparency I have provided this link to my present and former declarations of interest.

Since December 2011, and in accordance with my commitment given before the election I have resigned as Director of the business I started, and in addition transferred my shares to my wife who has been a full time employee of the company for 16 years.

With best wishes,

Nick
