My audit of Councillor Lobbets expenses forms from Warwickshire County council has found out that Cllr Barry Lobbett has claimed around 400 miles of election related travel expenses from the taxpayer. These claims should have never been allowed by the county. They relate to the period of the local and general election in May 2010. He stood for the ward of Bedworth North for the Tories and was helping with the general election. The Tories won the North Warwickshire parliamentary seat by just a few votes.
It is not permitted to make such claims. He also claimed for attending borough council meeting from the county council.
