Nova Scotia's auditor general will release the results Tuesday of his forensic investigation into the expenses of members of the provincial legislature.
Jacques Lapointe launched a more extensive probe after releasing in February the results of a three-year audit that found numerous examples of inappropriate spending by members of all three parties.
It isn't known if Lapointe will name names in his latest investigation.
Premier Darrell Dexter said earlier this month he intends to release names if they are included in the audit and if Lapointe doesn't object.
Lapointe, in his earlier report, was critical of what he called a secretive expense system riddled with vague rules and lax oversight.
Expense claims by members ranged from the purchase of big-screen televisions and digital cameras to numerous computers and even a video game.
Lapointe launched the new investigation after saying he received new information.
He has said the probe would look into possible illegalities.
