An IPSA spokeswoman said: "The estimated cost of setting up IPSA in 2009/10 is £6.6m."

She added that this "reflects one-off costs of establishing a new, independent public body of this sort, such as the acquisition of accommodation and IT systems".

She also said: "Early estimates suggest that in direct staff costs, the team working directly on the expenses system within IPSA will cost less than the existing House of Commons arrangements."

A pity this was not set up years ago. It may have saved us millions.
