FROM A TO Z... THE PERKS OF BEING IN 43 GROUPS
MP for Romford
Sits on 43 APPGs ranging from Armenia to Zoos
Over the past decade, Andrew rosindell has declared more than 30 free trips to foreign countries and overseas territories paid for by their governments or political parties.
Just last month, as chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPG) for San Marino, he had a week-long trip to the tiny state worth £4,438 paid for by its consulate, and was given an honour for his ‘valuable support’.
A spokesman for Mr rosindell said he had never had a second job and added: ‘Andrew takes regular trips abroad to ensure he remains fully informed about the many international issues he cares about, particularly relevant given his position on the Foreign Affairs Select Committee.
‘He declares these trips in the proper way as he did in the recent trip to San Marino.’
