Nadine Dorries: expense claims questioned in Sunday Times

Welcome shortly to the new Parliament, where not everything has changed:

NADINE DORRIES, the Conservative MP, faces the first expenses complaint of the new parliament after a row about a £10,000 claim she paid to a friend’s company.

Her former Commons researcher, Peter Hand, is writing to John Lyon, the parliamentary commissioner for standards, questioning whether the claim can be justified.

The complaint will undermine hopes that the expenses controversy can be consigned to the last parliament.

Dorries, who last week retained her mid-Bedfordshire seat, claimed the money for an annual report in 2007 on her performance as an MP, and consultancy services, but Hand said he never saw the report or worked on it.

You can read the full story in the Sunday Times.

  • The BBC is behaving discustingly, playing down PR and what the people want, they are playing by Murdoch’s rules it’s sickening to see, and no mention of Naddine Dorries you would have thought the media vulctures would have jumped on this.
    We don’t just want PR we need PR.
