MP expenses and annual audits

Dear Friends,

Many people have asked about the process for auditing and reporting expenses for Members of Parliament. MPs’ expenditures are disclosed publicly each year and posted on-line.

In addition, there are independent, external audits done on House of Commons expenditures, including MPs’ expenses.

Unfortunately, some of the media reports on this have been inaccurate as to what actually does take place on MP expenses. The House of Commons has very strict rules for MP expenses including what is permissible or not.
