MPs Expenses

I'm no great lover of this government but this is highly biased reporting. Four major areas are being reformed. The only significant "climbdown" is the daily attendance allowance.

4 out of 5 is excellent - especially as the MPs themselves voted the 4 reforms through by overwhelming majority.
Plus there will be more when this Committee finishes their work.

No 2nd second home allowance for Greater London MPs 355 to 39.
All expenses supported by receipt 348 to 22.
Declare all outside earnings 305 to 31.
All MPs' staff employed centrally by the House, not by MP 285 to 96.

I say just for once WELL DONE MPS.
