Auditor General Refuses To Sign Off Commons Accounts

Recommended Posts


The Auditor General has refused to sign off last year's House of Commons accounts in full amid serious concerns about millions of pounds of expenses paid to MPs.

Amyas Morse, the head of the National Audit Office, found the Commons authorities unable to provide evidence justifying £2.6 million of claims.

In addition, the House could not prove that another £11.3 million of expenditure had been incurred for parliamentary purposes.

As a result, Mr Morse has qualified the Commons' accounts for 2009/10 - the first year in which he has been required to examine the claims of MPs in any detail.

In his report on the House of Commons Members Resource Accounts 2009/10, Mr Morse said there were £13.9 million of payments to MPs which were "either unsupported or where entitlement could not be fully demonstrated".

Not seen a thread on this.

Still compared to the deficit this is peanuts.
