- Sir Peter Hendy claimed back for everything from Walkers crisps to a £1 pork pie
- The embarrassing details emerged after a Freedom of Information Act request
- It comes just days after taxpayer-funded Network Rail revealed it hiked his pay
Network Rail’s £500,000-a-year boss claimed everything from expensive dinners to 57p bags of Walkers crisps on expenses, it emerged yesterday.
Just days after the taxpayer-funded operator revealed the bumper pay package of chairman Sir Peter Hendy – amid criticism of a deteriorating service – it became embroiled in a fresh row over public sector greed.
Embarrassing details of his spending on his corporate card have emerged following a Freedom of Information Act request.
The exclusive Groucho Club in Soho appears to be a favourite haunt of Sir Peter, with several bills for meals at the private establishment. The claims include £26 steaks and £22 veal chops. On all the bills, alcohol was not claimed due to Network Rail rules.
