Left-wing MPs sign up to Tory's call for bankers to publish expenses

Davies_david Monmouth's Tory MP David Davies put down the following Early Day Motion on 12th February:

"That this House believes that all banks which have received public funds and in which the British taxpayer now owns more than 50 per cent. of their value should be governed by the same freedom of information rules as Parliament; and calls on the senior management of these part-nationalised banks to publish their receipts for expenses in full."

The motion has the backing of fellow Conservative Nigel Evans but it's most notable for the support of left-wing Labour MPs, including Jeremy Corbyn, Ann Cryer, John McDonnell and David Simpson.
