Kinnock in the firing line of investigation into Brussels fraud claims

Tonight, a chosen few MEPs are allowed into a sealed room to view at least two highly sensitive reports on Eurostat, the EU's statistical agency. Revelations that up to €920,000 (£638,000) of cash, generated by Eurostat, was funnelled into unofficial slush funds have provoked the most serious scandal to hit the European Commission president, Romano Prodi.
