Chris Evans, Labour MP for Islwyn, said:

“Last year Chris Huhne stood with Sayeeda Warsi as she called for former Cabinet Ministers to forfeit their severance pay. If he didn't agree with her, he should have said so - so he should now forfeit the £17,207 he is entitled to.

“And if the Tories don't make it clear that they believe Chris Huhne should give up this payment, it will be clear that they think there's one rule for them and their Liberal Democrat friends and another for everyone else.”
