MPs FOI expenses decision delayed

A High Court decision on whether MPs expenses should be fully disclosed has been deferred to a later date.

It follows a full day of legal argument at the Royal Courts of Justice.

The House of Commons is fighting to avoid releasing the details of the expenses of 14 MPs and former MPs under the Freedom of Information Act.

They argue the publication of the MPs' second home addresses in a receipt-by-receipt breakdown of expenses would compromise security.

OK, that easy, just redact the address.

How much as their fight cost and what are they really so scared about?

Oh, and in future put them up in hotels, we shouldn't be funding a second house for a job they volunteer to do.
