Five shamed Labour MPs fail to repay £40k expenses

By Brendan Carlin
21st August 2010

Sir Thomas Legg
Sir Thomas Legg ruled that a year's worth of mortgage interest
claims on Labour MP Ivor Caplin's second home were invalid

Five former Labour MPs still have not returned a total of more than £40,000 of over-claimed MPs’ expenses – six months after the official deadline.

Commons authorities confirmed last night that the politicians were defying orders to refund the money from unjustified second-home allowances.

They include former Labour Defence Minister Ivor Caplin, who owes nearly £18,000.

In his review of MPs’ expenses published in February, Sir Thomas Legg ruled that a year’s worth of mortgage interest claims on Mr Caplin’s second home were invalid.

Mr Caplin and other MPs were given two weeks to arrange to repay  the cash.

But six months on, the Commons authorities confirmed that he has still not paid back the money. He was unavailable for comment yesterday. However, according to information released by the Commons, he is not disputing the repayment order unlike two other ex-MPs.

Diana Organ, former Forest of Dean MP, is challenging a £12,803 return and Labour peer Baroness Adams is disputing Sir Thomas’s ruling that she should repay £4,110 from her time as MP for Paisley.

Ex-Scottish MP John Lyons still owes £10,894.

The fifth ex-MP who has yet to pay up is Lorna Fitzsimons, the former MP for Rochdale, who owes £500.

Last night, there were concerns that as the Commons has no power to force ex-MPs to comply with the rulings, the cash may never be returned.

Matthew Elliott, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance campaign group, said: ‘Even though these people are former MPs, they have a duty to repay the expenses. They should do their bit to restore trust in politics.’
