Very hard to believe but the MPs who repaid expenses got the money back in secret deal with the Commons authorities.
YOU COULDN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!
The MPs were offered the expenses deals following the Legg audit of claims dating back to 2004 which was ordered in the wake of the expenses scandal.
Under the terms of the review’s remit – which was determined by the MPs themselves – the audit team could ask for money back if claims were in breach of the notoriously lax rules at the time.
Figures released following a Freedom of Information request show that 26 MPs applied for the refunds. The FULL HORRIBLE TRUTH
