MPs Fiddling Expenses

We call upon parliament to bring forward a law stopping MPs investigating themselves,where there are found to be discrepancies in the expenses claimed by any elected representative.
And for any representative being investigated to be suspended until the investigation is over. If found guilty they should be banned from holding any future elected post.
