MPs who break the rules could face up to a year in jail under new government plans. Leader of the House of Commons Harriet Harmon has been outlining Ministers' ideas for cleaning up Westminster in the wake of public anger over MPs' expenses claims.

 

“The Bill will also create new criminal offenses1 for knowingly making a false claim for an allowance, failing without reasonable excuse to register a relevant interest, contravening2 without reasonable excuse the rules on paid advocacy.” The new law will tighten3 the rules on MPs’ allowances. Ms. Harmon also said ministers would review last week’s publication of blacked-out expenses claims which prompted criticism from Freedom of information campaigners. The expenses revelations by the Daily Telegraph for over the past few weeks have led to the resignation of a host of MPs in the face of investigation4 into a number of individuals. It was the expenses scandal that led to the downfall of the last Speaker of the House of the Commons Michael Martin. His replacement5 John Bercow has pledged to oversee6 reform of Parliament, but that comes despite controversy7 over his own claims, which saw allegations of flipping8 and a decision to pay back 6,500 pounds to the taxman.
