Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson was among those gifted a £30,000 box at Wembley for the Carabao Cup final in February.

The sum of £1,100 was declared by Mr Tomlinson on the Parliamentary Register of Members' Financial Interests, where MPs must declare gifts relevant to their political activities over £300.

He was one of a 30-strong party at the national stadium, with former deputy PM Thérèse Coffey among those sharing the double box and a package which included lunch and a programme.

They watched Liverpool defeat Chelsea 1-0 after extra-time thanks to a late Virgin van Dijk winner.

Mr Tomlinson, the Conservative MP for North Swindon, was given the box for the game between Chelsea and Liverpool by the Premier League as a member of the all-party parliamentary committee (APPC) for football.

The committee includes MPs from all parties and holds meetings about football issues with relevant authorities.

The figure was provided by the Premier League by dividing the yearly cost of the box among the number of attendees.

Mr Tomlinson said: “It was very enjoyable. Everyone who knows me, I watch football every single week."

Mr Tomlinson has also been given a tour of the Football Manager studios and been to the Call of Duty launch.

MPs can be part of as many committees as they choose, but according to Mr Tomlinson, a Blackburn Rovers fan, football is one of the most popular.

According to his website, Mr Tomlinson occasionally plays for the parliamentary football team whose 7-2 defeat to Honourable Artillery Company FC was revealed in their latest X post.
