No one can say they have missed the latest up roar in the papers – MP expenditure claims.
But we payed closest attention to one in particular:
‘one Tory grandee charged £98.63 for a service on his swimming pool boiler at his country home’.
Alright for some!
Here is what a panel of panel of remuneration and ethics experts had to say:
Professor James Connelly, director of the Institute of Applied Ethics at Hull University;
No. He should swim in cold water.
Lady (Mary) Warnock, ethicist;
No. I don’t think a swimming pool can be counted as a necessity.
Justine Woolf, senior consultant at Innecto reward consulting, which advises firms on their remuneration strategies;
No. It’s one thing for an employer to pay the heat and light of the house, another entirely for a swimming pool.
