MPs' expenses unearthed after FoI victory

Prime minister Gordon Brown charged a Sky Sports subscription and his TV licence fee to expenses, newly released data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act has revealed.

The disclosure comes after MPs decided not to appeal against the Information Commissioner’s ruling that expense details for about a dozen key politicians should be made public.

A separate case, which could see all MPs’ expenses made public, is currently before the High Court.
