MPs shoot down expenses overhaul

Members of Parliament vote not to have their expenses put under the spotlight by auditors

The MPs expenses storm has taken a new twist as members knocked back a move
to have their expenses put under the spotlight.

MPs shot down moves to have their allowances vetted by forensic auditors,
despite serious criticism from the public on the issue.

Members also voted to keep the £24,000 a year budget to buy and furnish
second homes as they refused to shift their stance on expenses.

The expenses regime at Westminster has caused controversy recently as members
faced a raft of criticism for their spending habits.
