Speaker Suspends Payments to Theft Charged MPs

Some sense seems to be prevailing over the theft charged Labour MPs.   Labour say they have (belatedly) withdrawn the whip from them. About time…

Speaker Bercow has ordered that resettlement grants of up to £64,000 to the three MPs, who are standing down at the election, would be suspended until the Court has reached a verdict. Writing to Malcolm Jack, the Commons accounting officer, Bercow said:

“I instruct you to suspend any payments which would otherwise be due … in any case where criminal proceedings are brought in relation to any claim for expenses until the criminal proceedings have been finally disposed of.”

Guido would go further and take away not only their resettlement grant but their pensions as well.
