Essex peer Lord Hanningfield went abroad on council card
A peer jailed for fiddling expenses spent thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money on trips to the Bahamas, India and China.
Lord Hanningfield, 71, served nine weeks of a nine-month sentence last year after being convicted of falsely claiming £28,000 in parliamentary expenses.
The council, led by the peer from 2001 until 2010, has published details of his corporate credit card spending. Lord Hanningfield is yet to comment.
