ANOTHER REASON has been found to qualify the House of Commons Member Accounts.
National Audit Office comptroller and auditor general Amyas Morse has qualified the members accounts as information on MPs’ expenses whose claims were under investigation by the Police were not made available for audit.
The Clerk of the House, would not make the information available to the NAO as it deemed it inappropriate, “…this was despite the C&AG’s assurance that such information would be treated as confidential” said the NAO.
Last year the NAO qualified the 2009/2010 members accounts audit as insufficient evidence was provided to prove MPs’ expenses totalling nearly £14m. But this year the transfer of responsibility of their expenses to IPSA left a significantly lower level of unsupported spend in the members accounts.
