‘MPs being investigated for alleged abuses of their expenses will have their names kept secret, the Commons watchdog has announced.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority will no longer release the names of MPs under investigation and the public will be barred from hearings.
The watchdog claimed that the move was intended to protect the MPs from the “reputational damage” they would suffer because of “public scrutiny”.’
