They said sweeping reforms of Commons allowances should not breach natural justice or be retrospective. Many MPs are angry that they could be barred from employing family members and claiming mortgage interest payments on second homes. Some of them hope that Sir Ian Kennedy, the chairman of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, will water down the reforms proposed by Sir Christopher Kelly, chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life. After meeting last night the two men issued a joint statement stating that IPSA had a lot of work to do. Previously, pay increases proposed by the Senior Salaries Review Body have been overruled. Now, 37 MPs have signed a Commons motion calling for the Government and Parliament not to block any pay rise recommended by an independent body. They include Labours Andrew Dismore, Keith Vaz, Frank Dobson, Frank Field and Graham Allen, Tory Sir Nicholas Winterton and Liberal Democrat Sir Alan Beith. Following the appointment of Sir Ian, they said: We hope he carries out his duties in line with natural justice. Some MPs have called for their salary to rise from 63,291 a year to as much as 90,000.

Stanhope, the developer in charge of the site, has agreed to make part of the land available for a year.

The office for National Statistics said unemployment reached 2.46 million in September, up 30,000 from July, the smallest rise since spring 2008. However, Jobseekers Allowance claimants rose 12,900 to 1.64 million, the worst total for 12 years. Figures also show the young hit disproportionately hard. The number of 16-24-year-olds is up 15,000 to 943,000, a rate of 19.8 per cent, a record high. PGoRDoN BRoWN faced a Labour revolt over plans to abolish childcare tax breaks today. Former ministers warned that the party risked losing the support of working mothers. Nine lambasted the Prime Ministers decision to abolish childcare vouchers used by more than 340,000 parents, saving them up to 2,400 a year. It was revealed in September that Mr Brown planned to stop funding the vouchers to provide means- tested childcare for the poorest. Since his announcement at Labours party conference, more than 70,000 people have signed a petition on the No10 website condemning the plans. Parenting site has also been inundated with complaints. Former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt and other Blairite former ministers today said the decision would mark the undoing of one of Labours landmark achievements. Ms Hewitt, Estelle Morris, Hilary Armstrong, Beverley Hughes and Caroline Flint were among signatories to a letter to Progress think tank. Surely this is not the time for remove support from hard-working families, they said.Hewitt: criticism You have judges who have no recognisable talent apart from self-promotion.
