New housing arrangements for MPs unveiled

MPs will no longer be able to claim any allowances for the homes they live in while attending to Parliamentary duties at Westminster, it was revealed today. Under the new regulations, they will be provided with a big tent on Parliament Square and each of the 646 members will be issued with a sleeping bag and a camp bed. Although space will be tight, it is thought that matters will be eased somewhat by the absence of the Prime Minister who will be busy at Downing Street, unblocking the kitchen sink and putting a load in the washing machine.
