TWO of Cambridgeshire' MPs, James Paice and Malcolm Moss, will not be asked to repay any of their expense claims following a comprehensive review by Sir Thomas Legg.
The review, which looked at the claims of all 645 members of parliament over the last five years, was conducted in the wake of the expenses scandal which engulfed the House of Commons earlier this year.
Spokesmen for both Mr Paice, MP for South-East Cambridgeshire, and Mr Moss, MP for North-East Cambridgeshire, confirmed to the Ely Standard, that neither of the respective MPs would have to pay back any of their claims, although Mr Paice has been asked to submit details of his mortgage interest claims.
He told the Ely Standard, "Along with most other MPs I have received a letter from Sir Thomas Legg who has been examining the claims of MPs over the last five years. He has simply asked to see copies of my annual mortgage interest statements which I am happy to provide. He states that he sees no cause for action on any other matter. I shall not therefore be required to pay any money back.
