A review of MPs expenses

A section of Harriet Harman’s written announcement on MP’s expenses reads:

“In future all staff appointed by MPs without exception should become direct employees of the House of Commons, which would become centrally responsible for their employment terms and conditions, their contracts, and the payment of their salaries within the limit allowed - and will have the right to make an independent assessment of such contracts. The Committee on Standards in Public Life is examining the rules governing employment of spouses or other relatives.”

Does this include interns and unpaid parliamentary researchers? What are the implications for those on expenses only wages if employment terms and conditions are to be controlled by the House of Commons?
