Legge Report due out this week
“Parliamentary sources said the report would be “explosive” and that it would attack in the strongest possible terms the discredited expenses system — which is to be completely overhauled — the Commons Fees Office, which approved payments, and MPs themselves.
However, Sir Thomas’s findings risk causing a further “cover-up” storm when they are released because only the briefest details of the MPs’ appeals process will be made known. No information will be released about the reasons given by MPs for appealing to Sir Paul Kennedy, the former judge appointed to investigate their protests, or whether their appeals were deemed justified or not."
