Legg Letter - Barrett Gets All Clear
Today John Barrett MP for Edinburgh West received his letter from Sir Thomas Legg regarding the issue of expenses and overpayments, which will have to be repaid by a number of MPs. Mr Barrett's own letter stated that there were no issues and no amounts to be repaid. Sir Thomas Legg's full report on the entire issue will now go to the Members' Estimate Committee in late December. Mr Barrett commented, "I am pleased to see that there were no issues of concern with my own expenses and I look forward to the day when the entire existing system for expenses is swept away and replaced with one which restores the public's trust."
