No further details
David Maclean has now announced that he would like his Bill on MPs and FOI to be amended so that it requires the Commons to publish every year the figures for MPs' travel, accommodation, incidental expenses, secretarial and other allowances.
This would convert the Speaker's pledge to do this into a legal obligation. It will be presented as a compromise and may shore up some of the diminishing support for the Bill. But it would make little difference to its actual practical impact.
The Bill would still exempt Parliament generally from freedom of information. So even if the Commons has to carry on publishing the summary information about MPs' allowances that it already does, it means that MPs would not be threatened by further cases where the Information Commissioner might force them to reveal more and more detail about how they spend their allowances. Some MPs back the Bill because they would find more detailed disclosures uncomfortably intrusive.
And the Bill would also completely rule out other requests (one example here) to the Parliamentary authorities for information relating to how the Houses of Parliament are run.
