No More Taxis For McLetchie.

Is it just Mr Smith or is this one change which seems to have been made without a lot of public scrutiny.

"SCOTTISH Parliament bosses have relaxed the rules on MSPs' taxi claims despite a history of rows and scandals. Under a new allowances scheme, Holyrood politicians will be able to claim back fares of up to £20 without providing justification. And tough sanctions to deal with MSPs who run up excessive bills have been scrapped."

This is a move which will spare many of our MSPs a lot of embarassment.
