The auditor general has refused to fully sign off MPs’ expenses, salaries and pensions accounts for last year.

Amyas Morse raised concerns about nearly £15m of payments made in 2009-10, the year of the expenses scandal.

He said evidence could not be obtained for £1.8m of claims, because those MPs were under police investigation.

Despite a “major exercise” evidence had not been obtained for another £0.8m and evidence provided for £11.3m was not considered sufficient by auditors.
