STOP MPs who receive Housing Benefit via property they own, speaking/voting on Welfare topics, due to a prejudicial pecuniary interest.

The National Housing Benefit budget has been cut drastically in the past 3 years, particularly via the Bedroom Tax & the Benefit Cap and the Government persist in telling the Country it is the fault of those claiming.

Yet this week The Mirror reported another MP receiving £625K a year from the State in Housing Benefit, this is "despite blasting the 'something for nothing' welfare state.

These MPs then go into Parliament  to justify and vote for yet more Cuts - this is wrong and Standards must insist they desist immediately  - Stop MPs taking money from the People
