Michael Dugher MP said in response to the news that David Cameron's personal photographer and film maker will be taken off the Civil Service payroll:

"I welcome the Prime Minister bowing down to public pressure. The Prime Minister should have known from the start that it's wrong to bill the taxpayer for his vanity photographer.

"But today's flip-flop raises more questions. If it's wrong to charge taxpayers for Andrew Parsons or Nicky Woodhouse then why are so many other Conservative party workers being hired via this sharp practice as so-called civil servants?"
