    A kind of special high rate DLA for MPs

    On 16 December 1987 the House decided to increase the allowance given to Rt Hon David Blunkett MP
    by 50% of the basic allowance, to take into account the increased difficulties he faces in being a visually
    impaired Member. This was increased to 2.57 times the basic amount on 14 July 1988, a figure which
    was subsequently renewed on 14 July 1992, on 13 July 1994, and again on 10 July 1996.
    On 26 November 1998 the House decided to increase the allowance given to Miss Anne Begg MP to
    1.55 times the basic amount of both the Office Costs Allowance and the Additional Costs Allowance.
    Previously, on 20 March 1998, the House had decided to increase the allowance paid to Miss Begg to
    1.33 times the basic amount for both the Office Costs Allowance and the Additional Costs
    Allowance. The House also agreed on this date that the limit on Members' staff travel for Miss Begg
    should be 34 return journeys in the 12 months beginning 1 January 1998.

    Yes I remember this well, this we are told is to allow for the extra help needed in doing tasks at the constituency office plus getting help to carry out work at Parliament.

    Nothing like one rule for them and one for us
