The House of Commons has awarded significant pay rises to its senior officials, including some of those who oversaw the MPs' expenses scandal.Where did I put my flaming torch and effing pitchfork?
Annual accounts just released show that the Clerk to the House, Malcolm Jack, received a rise of about 11%, meaning he now earns more than Gordon Brown.
Andrew Walker, who ran the Fees Office which administered expenses, received a rise of about 8%.
His salary rose from a band of £115,000 - £120,000 to £125,000 - £130,000.
