Author: By Gavin Cordon, Press Association

The Commons Standards and Privileges Committee said there was nothing in the
Tory MP’s mortgage arrangements that breached Commons rules.

David Cameron removed Duncan from his Shadow Cabinet role as Shadow Leader of
the House over the summer after Mr Duncan’s claim that MPs were being forced
to live “on rations”.

The Rutland and Melton MP was covertly filmed by campaigner Heydon Prowse.

Cameron for claims for gardening at his constituency home over three years.
