Twenty MPs pocket up to £180,000 each on taxpayer-funded second homes
Steven Swinford, and Rowena MasonThe MPs have jointly made more than £1 million by selling their second homes, and under parliamentary rules they are entitled to keep the money.
The scale of their windfall was disclosed for the first time in figures released by the parliamentary watchdog today, and prompted accusations that MPs were making a personal profit from taxpayers' money.
Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, handed all the profit he made on the sale of his second home to House of Commons authorities in 2011.
