An MP from Spelthorne claimed more than £2,500 in expenses to cover his office's printer ink costs, it has been reported.

According to the Staines News, David Wilshire was the sixth highest-claiming MP in the UK over the past four years.

As well as the four-figure printer ink bill, the Conservative MP from Surrey also racked up more than £200 in newspaper costs and spent £9,000 on "communications", a full publication of his expense accounts revealed.

The newspaper reported that Mr Wilshire claimed a total of £438,000 between 2004 and 2008, including £160,000 in 2007/08 alone.

People looking to save money on their printer ink bills could consider switching to a printer that keeps operational costs low.

Last week, the Cnet reviewed the Canon Pixma MX330, highlighting its efficient use of ink.

The gadget news website explained that the MX330 is equipped with two ink cartridges, which can help consumers to "keep costs low".
