Modify the rules on Parliamentary Privilege so that MPs accused of misuse of the expenses system explicitly cannot find any shelter behind the rules on Parliamentary Privilege.

Why is this idea important?

It disgusts me that MPs accused of gross abuse of the expenses sysytem can claim Parliamentary Privilege in their defence. As an employee of a private company I would face instant dismissal for such an offence and prosecution without any hope of hiding behind rules that clearly were not meant for such an occurence.
