Proposed reforms of the House of Lords expenses system have run into trouble - the lords aren't happy.
Last month the House discussed a review of peer expenses by the Senior Salaries Review Board, which suggested paying £200 a day to peers who turn up and sign on. This would be on top of £140 a night for peers who live outside London. The new system would cut the nightly allowance given to peers by £35 - but would also increase the daily allowance by £38.50.
Despite the leaders of the three main parties recommending that the House accepts the "architecture and principles" of the review, there are loud grumblings emanating from the backbenches.
