MPs fret over expense claims release

The Guardian, p 7 08-05-2004
By Chief political correspondent Patrick Wintour

"MPs are anxiously awaiting the publication of their expenses claims for the past three years - with some comparing records among each other amid fears of exposure for excessive spending of taxpayers' money.

The individual claims will be released under the Freedom of Information Act. The act will apply to parliament from the start of next year, but the House of Commons commission is bringing forward publication to the autumn."

There is a FOI page for Parliament
