Accounts commission put Bourn on the menu

Public accounts mandarins are set to meet today to discuss moves to vet Sir
John Bourn’s expenses.

The public sector spending watchdog will be high on the the Public
Accounts Commission’s agenda today after being embroiled in an expenditure
scandal of his own.

Sir John found himself under intense scrutiny after it emerged that he and
his wife had racked up an expenses bill of more than £340,000 in three years. 

In defending its boss, the NAO maintained that Sir John’s travels had been
connected with work that generated more than £4m of income.
