Adam Afriyie: Conservative who says MPs shouldn’t ‘scrabble around on £67,000’ could make millions on sale of his home

Adam Afriyie, MP for Windsor, had bought the six-storey, grade II* Listed Georgian house in November 2005 for £7.25m, the Times reported. The home is now listed on upmarket estate agent Hathaways for £16.75m.

A critic of the parliamentary expenses system, Mr Afriyie, who is estimated to be worth upwards of £50 million, courted controversy when he told Newsnight in February 2015 that “you can’t expect an MP to scrabble around on a salary of £67,000”.
