Sinn Fein Allowance

Asked what the vote on Sinn Fein allowances was about, the PMOS said it was about restoring their MPs allowances, which were taken away from Sinn Fein because of previous activity. The Independent Monitoring Commission (IMC) report last year recommended they be removed and if people looked at the IMC report published last week it recommended that all financial sanctions on Sinn Fein should now be lifted. This would be voted on in the House this afternoon. There was also the new allowance of Short money.
