Put Expense Claims Online

I understand that the current expense reimbursement system for politicians does not require production of receipts and is a flat rate payment.

A number of councils in the U.K. now put each councillor's expenses online for public scrutiny. All claims have to be supported by evidence of payment.

Why the contribution is important

No use of taxpayers' money should be unsupported. There may not be much by way of cost saving. However it is a matter of probity.

"Caesar's wife should be above suspicion" is a good guide.
