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, there have been some inaccurate media reports as to what actually does take place with MP expenses. The House of Commons has very strict rules, which I adhere to, about what is permissible and what is not.
