MPs face further scrutiny over lobbyist room bookings

So, no new tales concerning lobbyists and the use of parliamentary banqueting facitites in the Sunday papers today.

But for how long? Norman Baker, the Liberal Democrat MP who has campaigned against sleaze in Parliament on many an occasion, tells the Sunday Telegraph:

‘The booking of rooms by MPs should be done to facilitate their duties in the house, not to help external lobbyists.

‘I will be looking closely at this document, along with many other people I’m sure, in order to see if any rules have been broken and whether there are any grounds for complaint.’

Keep us posted, Norman…
