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."

Labour has accused the supermarket chain Tesco of being an "almighty conglomerate" which abuses its market power to dominate small towns at the expense of small business, the Guardian reports. Labour is calling on the Government to confront Tesco, with Shadow Local Government Minister Jack Dromey saying: "It is simply not right that you can have one almighty conglomerate using its market power at the expense of the high street, and other retailers, particularly small struggling retailers".
