MPs to escape expenses investigations after paperwork destroyed by Parliament

Post  Guest on Mon 03 Nov 2014, 6:36 pm

House of Commons authorities have destroyed all evidence of MPs expenses' claims prior to 2010, meaning end of official investigations into scandal
MPs accused of abusing the unreformed expenses system will escape official investigation after the House of Commons authorities destroyed all record of their claims, the Telegraph can reveal.

John Bercow, the Speaker, faces accusations he has presided over a fresh cover-up of MPs' expenses after tens of thousands of pieces of paperwork relating to claims made before 2010 under the scandal-hit regime were shredded.

Members of the public who have written to Kathryn Hudson, the standards watchdog, to raise concerns about their MP’s claims have been told there can be no investigation due to lack of evidence.

Isn't the fact that all of these documents were shredded worth an investigation in itself? There would be an outcry so loud and far-ranging in Canada if that happened here, the press would be all over it.
