A Fifth Former Labour MP is Charged With Expenses Fraud
Following a succession of former Labour MP’s (Jim Devine, David Chaytor, Eric Illsley and Elliot Morley) and two Conservative Peers, who have been charged and convicted of fiddling their Parliamentary expenses, today we have learned that a FIFTH former Labour MP is to be charged. Margaret Moran, former MP for Luton South, is to be charged with 21 offences – 15 of false accounting and 6 of forging invoices.
The total amount involved is “more than £60,000” used to refurbish her main home, in breach of Parliamentary expenses rules. This makes her case possibly the most serious case to be brought before the courts. It has been delayed due to Moran’s claims of ill health but it seems that prosecutors have lost patience and decided to press charges.
Moran will appear before City of Westminster Magistrates on 19 September.
