Vince Cable and Tessa Munt

The parliamentary standards commissioner is to open an investigation into Vince Cable and his aide Tessa Munt following evidence submitted by Scrapbook (FULL LETTER).

With expensive private polling of their constituencies linked to Lord Oakeshott’s botched coup against Nick Clegg, the pair failed to declare any donation-in-kind on the Register of Members’ Intersts — despite such surveys costing more than £4,000 a pop.

Giving the scandal fresh legs, the investigation threatens to further weaken Cable’s moral authority within the Liberal Democrats.
