Elected representatives and their office staff have written to authorities in charge of the Commons to complain about the catering available for people working in the historic building.
According to The Sun, MPs on a basic salary of £82,000 can enjoy fresh fish for as little as £3.73 and a crumble dessert for 98p.

Some people complained about spicy food and the lack of ‘traditional options’
Some of the complaints have referred to the lack of options, while others have raised the weakness of the coffee.
The list of complaints between October 2021 and March 2022 involve a request to remove onions from one dish while issues of a shortage of poached eggs and English mustard.
Other complainants have raised issues over ‘the number of spicy dishes’ and the lack of ‘traditional menu items’.
A House of Commons spokesman told The Sun: ‘Where cleaning issues are identified, we act quickly to address them.
‘Our food and drink offering is regularly benchmarked against similar outlets and we continuously seek to reduce costs.’
