http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-13548950,00.html Who on earth authorises claims by MPs? It seems to me that in recent years there has been a real clampdown in terms of what you can claim for. Civ Sec bear down on claims that 'go against the spirit they were intended'. These claims are basically an excuse for a second income. Quite indefensible. But they don't have to do they?
