Some provisional legislative councillors have claimed close to the maximum amount of non-accountable allowances which can be claimed without receipts. Records of claims are now available for public access. Members are entitled to reimbursement of staff and office costs not exceeding $84,380; travel and entertainment costs up to $14,060, of which $7,030 can be claimed without receipts; and a district office allowance of no more than $14,060 a month. Some members claimed either the full amount available without receipts, or close to it, in most months last year. They included Hong Kong Progressive Alliance member David Chu Yu-lin, Liberal Party vice-chairman Ronald Arculli and National People's Congress deputy Kan Fook-yee. Some did not make a single claim, and others seldom sought reimbursements. For example, Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong chairman Tsang Yok-sing asked only for the maximum available in three months of last year. At other times he claimed only a little or nothing at all. Mr Kan, also a National People's Congress deputy, claimed the maximum travel and entertainment allowance available without receipts, but claimed none of the entertainment money for which documents were required. Mr Kan said he had had many meal appointments with property and infrastructure experts to hear their views, but did submit receipts as he did not want to reveal who he dined with. Mr Arculli said his assistant handled his accounting work. Mr Chu was not available for comment last night.
