A group of more than 70 MPs opposed to full disclosure on parliamentary allowances have between them claimed more than £10.3 million in expenses, at a higher average rate than their colleagues.
The MPs have signed an early day motion supporting Michael Martin, the Speaker of the House of Commons, who has blocked attempts to force MPs to reveal full details of their expenses.
