Olly Martins – Labour Party
Mr Martins has no recent public offices or appointments known to TopOfTheCops. He is believed to be the same Oliver Martins who was Deputy Leader of the Labour group on Liverpool City Council till 2003, representing Netherley Ward. He is also described as having worked with Victim Support, and as an MP’s assistant. More precision on the roles, dates and the employer for both of these would be useful.
Liverpool City Council publish details from 2003-4 giving just over one month’s of Cllr Martins claims.
Details from the previous 3 years have been provided after a request from TopOfTheCops and, as full years, these will be taken as the reference point, in this case the years 2000/1, 2001/2 and 2002/3. They show claims for Basic Allowance of £7,763.78, £8,057.47 and £8,584.18 respectively, and of Special Responsibility Allowance of £1,121.45, Nil and £5,416.69 respectively. There was no payment in any of the years for travel or subsistence.

What point are you trying to make here then
I’m not trying to make a point – I’m providing information.
Well done on the enormous amount of research done here – I hate to rain on your parade, but does any of it really mean much?
Surely the real (but, sadly, less tangible) issue is whether the candidates actually earned the money they took. Did they perform? A really effective PCC (but one who canes the expenses) gets my vote, over someone who spends nothing and does nothing.
