It has been revealed that MPs claimed more than Au10 million in expenses in the final six months of 2009.

The spending emerged as the House of Commons published the latest itemised breakdown of how allowances were used.

The material covers accommodation, office, communications and incidental expenses from the second and third quarters of the 2009-10 financial year.

Altogether MPs claimed Au10,054,521.97 between July and December, according to the database.

The figures indicate that MPs' spending dropped significantly after the expenses scandal broke last spring.

By comparison, the database shows that in the second and third quarters of 2008/9 a total of Au11,768,749.14 was claimed.
