Michael Dugher MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, responding to reports today that Baroness Warsi’s private business associate accompanied her to meetings in London, said:

"More questions are piling up for Baroness Warsi following new revelations that her private business associate did not just accompany her on an official overseas trip, but joined her at meetings with senior Pakistani politicians in London as well.

"David Cameron must make clear that the independent adviser on ministerial interests, Sir Alex Allan, will be asked to look into all of the very serious issues that have been raised in recent weeks. Having refused to take action against Jeremy Hunt, the Prime Minister must see to it that there is a full, proper and wide-ranging inquiry into the conduct of Baroness Warsi.

"David Cameron must ensure that all his ministers obey the rules and live up to the highest standards. Sir Alex Allan must be allowed to do his job without interference from Downing Street."
