Question: did MPs  have to provide travel reciepts before 2009?
Answer: Yes. They filled in form T2 and attached tickets/receipts if they did not purchase tickets via HOC Travel Card… which is still the case now.
Car journeys within the constituency area were exempt from receipt provision, these are electronically mapped now however.
