Claudia Bearmish, MSP, claimed £7.20 commuting to her capital base to Holyrood, taking advantage of the 20p per mile allowance.

Other MSPs, however, claimed £240,000 in mileage for their cars.

Claudia cycled her 3 mile journey twelve times over the last year, per records of MSPs’ expenses for the last yr. "For me it's out and away the most effective approach of movement around capital"
