MPs are embroiled in a new expenses row after it emerged that 27 are letting out London homes at the same time as claiming public money to rent in the city.


Former defence secretary Liam Fox, shadow ministers Andy Burnham, Jim Murphy and Chris Bryant, and Communities Minister Don Foster are among those listed as raking in income from properties while receiving up to £20,000 a year in expenses. Although the practice does not break any rules, it will fuel concerns that politicians are still able to profit from Commons allowances.
