European Parliament mulls allowances for home-working MEPs

https://euobserver.com/coronavirus/147870

Most MEPs are working remotely given the pandemic.

The European Parliament is debating whether to retain MEP daily allowances, even when they work remotely from home.

The daily €323 lump sum is meant to cover things like hotel bills and meals, provided MEPs physically sign a register either inside the parliament in Brussels or in Strasbourg.

But with the mini-plenary being held off-site this week, some are speculating on whether MEPs should still be entitled to it.

MEPs are also entitled to €4,563 per month to cover office expenses and receive a monthly salary of €6,962.95, after taxes.

Re: European Parliament mulls allowances for home-working MEPs

I am sure MPs also qualify for similar daily allowance when they attend parliament.

Well I’ve never come across anyone who gets hotel/travel expenses when working from home.....that in the real world would be classed as fiddle.
