Over on the Newsletter Live Chat today Jim Nicholson is being grilled by the NI public.
The issue of expenses has come up and he stated that he would publish his expenses in the next European Parliament.
“No doubt the questions of expenses come from what is happening at Westminster. The European system is far from perfect but bears no resemblence to the Westminster system. i was appointed by the president of the parliament to the working party to reform the European system. This has now happened and will happen immediately after the new parliament resumes. I have already pledged to publish my expenses in the next Parliament.”
Why don’t you do it now Jim, and Bairbre?
