DescriptionGordon Brown said today that no MP who had defied the rules on their Commons expenses would be allowed to stand for election as a Labour Party candidate.
After addressing a meeting of Labour's ruling National Executive Committee, the Prime Minister also promised "major changes" in the system of MPs' expenses.

He said that, from today, the expenses of every MP going back four years would be examined.

Mr Brown, speaking after a meeting of Labour's national executive which discussed the expenses crisis, said it had unanimously decided that "no candidate, no Member of Parliament will stand for the Labour Party at the next election" if they had "defied" the rules on expenses.
