Clegg Calls for a Quarter Less MPs

With 150 less Members of Parliament the tax payer would be saved about £30m annually. Nuick Clegg has told Radio 4's PM programme today.

It was part of a reform programme to make our electoral system both fairer and more representative. Measures including more decentralisation, caps on donations to £25,000 per individual and a £10m annual spending limit per party.

Francis Maude of the Conservatives also said his party were striving for such reforms and that Labour was "the roadblock to reform" by refusing to accept a cap on Trade Union affiliation fees.
