My post yesterday created a good discussion about the decision of the Scottish Parliament's Corporate Body to allow MSPs to claim for Remembrance Day wreaths.
The Times is reporting today that SNP MSPs will not claim for wreaths. I'm pleased to hear it. Surely they could go one step further and ask for the item to be removed from the list of claimable expenses. I know many veterans who would appreciate such a gesture.
Iain Gray said his personal view was that MSPs should pay for wreaths and not claim them on expenses. Decisive leadership as usual from Mr Gray.
