Taking a lead

I welcome the move today by (most) Conservative MPs to publish their expenses and related office and staffing details. I hope now that all MPs, from all parties, will follow their lead.

It is disappointing that seven Conservative MPs have decided (so far) not to make this information available to the voting and paying public. All of us involved in politics lose credibility and respect as a result of the poor example which is set by a small minority of our representatives in Westminster and Europe. This level of transparency is the very least voters have a right to expect.
