For­mer MPs will face trail

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

THREE for­mer Labour MPs and a Tory peer will stand trial over fid­dling their ex­penses and are not im­mune from pros­e­cu­tion, a judge ruled yes­ter­day. Mr Jus­tice Saun­ders re­jected ar­gu­ments by David Chay­tor, El­liot Morley, Jim Devine and Lord Han­ning­field that they were pro­tected by par­lia­men­tary priv­i­lege and should be dealt with by Par­lia­ment alone.
