The order paper for the House of Commons has been redesigned, costing the tax-payer £30,000, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The BBC report:

The House of Commons has spent more than £30,000 redesigning the document which lists the day’s business.

The order paper is published every day, and lists all the questions, debates and notices the House will deal with.

MPs were told last week that the redesign would incur “no additional costs”.
