BBC Reporting Stuff!

Cabinet Expenses to be published

Gordon Brown claimed back £6,000 after paying his brother for cleaning at his Westminster flat, it has been reported.

It is among details of expenses claims made by Cabinet ministers which are to be published by the Daily Telegraph.
No 10 said Mr Brown reimbursed his brother for the share of the cost and did not profit at all from it.
The paper also says Jack Straw used his expenses to claim back the entire council tax on his second home despite already having a 50% discount on it.

Mr Straw said all his claims were within the rules and that he spotted errors himself and repaid the money.
The newspaper has obtained details of receipts for claims made by the prime minister, Mr Straw, Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears and other senior Labour party figures.
