Investigation In To SNP MP's Expenses

24 February 2016, 13:59

A formal investigation has been launched into SNP MP Phil Boswell's use of expenses.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Association (Ipsa) announced that the compliance officer has opened an investigation into his claims.

Little information was released about the probe into claims relating to the Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill MP's office costs.

Ipsa said the investigation was triggered following a complaint by a member of the public.

Compliance officer Peter Davis has faced criticism for settling almost all of his cases without any publicity - despite promising to disclose the outcome of all investigations.
