Internal Economy Committee agrees on new Senators-only committee to audit Senate expenses

Senators say the proposed committee should be focused on keeping watch over an internal auditor to be hired to oversee the Red Chamber’s spending.

Senator Grant Mitchell, left, the government liaison in the Red Chamber, says there should be external members on the new committee, while Conservative Senators Scott Tannas and David Wells, centre and right, agree changes are needed to the Senate auditing process, but they're not as concerned with having external audit committee members.
