MP claimed for paid mortgage, say reports

The MP expense row has stepped up after the Daily Telegraph reported that a Labour MP claimed 18 months of mortgage repayments for a paid loan.

According to the newspaper Andrew Morley, MP for Scunthorpe, claimed £16,000 for mortgage repayments on a property in his constituency even though the mortgage had already been paid in full.

He claimed £800 a month for 18 months after the mortgage had ended.

Morley told the Telegraph that the claims had been a “mistake” and planned to pay the money back in full. The BBC has reported that Prime Minister Gordon Brown is “very concerned” about this latest expense slur.

The Telegraph says sources have described Morley as being “heartbroken and distraught”.
