MP predicts expenses 'mutiny'


Labour MP Austin Mitchell has told the BBC that if MPs don't have a say on expenses proposals there will be a "mutiny".

MPs face wide-ranging cuts to their second homes and other expenses, under proposals from an independent inquiry.

Mr Mitchell told the BBC that it would be "ridiculous" just to impose the reforms on MPs.
