MPs expenditure should be on the public record

You would hope its only a matter of time here also, as at least one party leader in NZ reflects on a recent order for disclosure of expenditure by MPs in the UK, and says bringing the Parliament under the Official Information Act will happen in NZ sooner or later.

Federally,this is one of the 106 recommendations for Freedom of Information in the Australian Law Reform Commission 1995 Open Government Report that were ignored by the Howard Government . The ALP said it would act on them, so just a matter of time?

None of our state legislatures are subject to FOI laws either.
