Michael Dugher MP, Labour's Shadow Minister without Portfolio, responding to the claims by Baroness Warsi that she has been cleared of all the charges against her, said:

"It is typically disingenuous of Baroness Warsi and the Conservative Party to claim that she has been cleared of any wrongdoing. This is not true - there was a lack of transparency about her living arrangements for which she has been rightly criticised. She was found in breach of the Ministerial Code, and the Government has repeatedly failed to answer the Parliamentary Questions that I have submitted in relation to her.

"It's clear that David Cameron is desperate to hang onto her and keep her in post because he is not strong enough to carry out the reshuffle that everyone knows he wants to do and impose his will on his fracturing Government."
