In the autumn, after many freedom of information requests, MPs expenses will be published in full. At that point we find out which MP's are value for money and which of them is blagging the taxpayer for every possible penny.
The cost of delivering this information to us? Apparently it will be £950,000, which mind sound like value for money, however, most of the work to do it is being contracted out and will be done "in secure conditions" (that means they will lock the door I guess).
Surely though, the expenses claims of MP's should be known by the MP's themselves? Why should it cost just short of million to give us the information? Anyone in business that makes expenses claims keeps records, don't our lords and masters?
