Jack Dromey has "unreservedly" apologised to the House of Commons after being reprimanded for failing to declare almost £30,000 in payments from trade union Unite.
Upon his election as an MP in June 2010, the Labour MP had indicated he was no longer receiving a salary from his previous post as deputy general secretary of Unite, but the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards found he had continued to work for the union, receiving £28,000 in pay. In its report, the Standards and Privileges Committee said Mr Dromey had made a "serious" error.
Mr Dromey told the House: "Notwithstanding that the Commissioner found, and the Committee noted, that the breaches were unintentional, I want to apologise unreservedly to the House, and I will in future fully abide by the rules of the House."
