"Some MPs are claiming nearly £10,000 in expenses for 'dependent children' who are 18 or older and are studying at university.

They're entitled to up to £5,400 per child as a second home expense under guidelines designed to help MPs with families rent larger homes. But many are topping up their £22,760 standard rental allowance by claiming for children in their 20s.

Energy Minister Claire Perry is said to have claimed £9,846 for her three children aged 17, 19 and 22, the Telegraph reports. The MP for Devizes who earns £111,148 a year insists all claims were compliant with expenses watchdog the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa).

Although the age limit for claiming for children is 18, it goes up to 21 under certain circumstances including for children in full-time education who need care. The Telegraph identified five other MPs who were also reportedly claiming allowances for adult children, two of whom have since agreed to return the money."

The age limit should be 16. You are not a child at 18 or 20.

Gave the money back now caught out but deceitfully took the money in the first place. They need to be terminated from their jobs.
