THE public has lost in confidence in the way MPs are reimbursed their expenses, both Huntingdonshire Members said this week. Neither Jonathan Djanogly, MP for Huntingdon, nor Shailesh Vara, whose North West Cambridgeshire constituency includes north Huntingdonshire, has become the focus of attention from the national media. However, Andrew Lansley, whose Cambridgeshire South constituency includes Cambourne, Papworth and Caxton, has felt the need to defend himself. Both Mr Djanogly and Mr Vara live in Huntingdonshire, and both have London homes that they have retained from their pre-Parliamentary days. Both are commercial lawyers and both are Shadow Ministers. No one has seriously questioned the need for MPs representing constituencies outside London to maintain a home in the capital, but the way some Members claim expenses for maintaining those homes has recently come under critical scrutiny.
