The MPs' expenses crisis of 2008-09 was the biggest scandal to hit modern British politics. It did immense damage to people's faith in politics, parliament and MPs.

Karen has made a commitment to claim the minimum possible in expenses to enable her to do the job properly.

Parliamentary expenses are published by the Indendent Parliamentary Standards Authority. Karen's expenses are published here and are available for public scrutiny.


Karen's up-to-date entry in the House of Commons' Register of Members' Financial Interests can also be found here.

Stepping down


Redditch has been my home for nearly 20 years and it has been a huge honour to have represented its great people for the past seven.

Sadly due to ill health I have decided not to stand for re-election. There is nothing more important or rewarding than helping people, however I need to be fully fit to be able to undertake the job properly.

I am immensely grateful to all the fantastic people I have met during my time as a Member of Parliament and want to say a huge thank you for all of their support.

Redditch deserves strong and stable leadership. Every vote for Theresa May and your local Conservative, Rachel Maclean, on 8 June will strengthen our hand in negotiations to get the best possible deal for Brexit and beyond, leaving Britain stronger and better off for the future.
