Hundreds of thousands of pounds in tax-free allowances were paid out during 2015 to peers who went through the entire year without ever contributing to debates in the House of Lords chamber, an analysis by The Independent has found.

 

The public record reveals that 117 men and women who are still listed as member of the House of Lords – one in seven of the total – never spoke in the main Lords chamber in the past year.

 

They included at least 49 who signed the register and claimed the £300 daily attendance allowance, with some pocketing an average of more than £4,000 a month.

I think all those who have not contributed should be asked to resign and repay some of the money they have been claiming for doing sod all !
