Firms to rule on Commons expenses

MPs are appealing to the accountancy profession to help dispel the public impression that they have their snouts in the trough

A report from the Commons members estimates committee chaired by speaker
Michael Martin has issued a report promising to ‘seek briefings on audit options
from the NAO,
HM Revenue & Customs,
the Audit
Commission
and private firms of accountants’.

The report was published after Martin issued a statement making it clear he
would not be forced out over allegations about charging taxi fares for his
wife’s shopping trips.

The committee has undertaken to publish position papers on the issue of MPs’
allowances next month.
