Rosie Cooper MP said:
“MPs should be subject to proper scrutiny when it comes to Parliamentary Allowances. For this reason I make my allowances available through my website. One of the things that’s never remarked upon in the furore over MPs’ expenses is that under the Conservatives nobody knew how much people were claiming. The current arrangements are far from perfect. The Parliamentary Standards Committee is carrying out an independent review of the system alongside the Prime Minister's recent announcement. If Parliament can come up with a system where I don't have any direct involvement in the finances I would be delighted. My priority is and remains fighting hard on behalf of West Lancashire residents."
