Miller expenses complaint

Miller expenses complaint
One of Maria Miller's aides highlighted the Culture Secretary's power over press regulation reform before the Daily Telegraph ran an article on her expenses claims.

An article in Tuesday’s paper reported that in the last parliament Ms Miller’s parents were living at a property designated as her second home, and for which she had claimed mortgage costs.

When informed of the story, Ms Miller’s special adviser reportedly said the minister wished to “flag up” her responsibility for overhauling the press regulator in the wake of the Leveson Report. The adviser also accused the newspaper of running the piece due to Ms Miller’s role in pushing through the Government’s plans to introduce equal marriage.

Ms Miller has denied any impropriety in her expenses claims, insisting earlier they are “absolutely in order”.

But Labour MP John Mann has written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, saying her claims are "identical" to those of former Labour MP Tony McNulty, who was later reprimanded.
