Outrageous: UK Parliament spends £28k of taxpayer money on furniture

Lavish and expensive new furniture costing a staggering £28,000 has been bought by parliamentary authorities for Portcullis House - at the cost of the UK taxpayer.

Swanky new tables, armchairs and sofas have all appeared in the Westminster office building, with the bill believed to have amounted to £27,766, excluding VAT.

Eight armchairs worth more than £1,000 each were part of the haul, as well as teal sofas and six leather chairs.

A House of Commons spokesman said: “Portcullis House is a hugely popular and valued building on the estate used by MPs and staff for dining, cafe facilities and as a meeting place.

“In recent years Portcullis House has become a central point for parliamentary business.

“In view of the increasing demand, we have adapted the courtyard to increase its capacity.”
