MPs' spouses 'distressed' over report


The review into MPs' expenses is expected to take substantial measures to reform the system of parliamentary allowances. MPs will no longer be able to employ family members on the parliamentary payroll, and will be banned from claiming expenses for mortgages on their second homes. Instead, second homes will need to be rented. Sally Hammond, wife of Tory MP Stephen Hammond and who works for him, and Tory MP Roger Gale who employs his wife, discuss the Kelly Committee's conclusions.
