Quote of the Day

Too little, too late from Maria Miller:

“The last 16 months have been difficult. As you know, I have been working hard for Basingstoke and also doing my job as a Cabinet minister.

During this time, I have been subject to an intense Parliamentary inquiry looking at extensive personal details of my family life, as a result of allegations made by a Labour MP.

That committee has now published its report and I have accepted their findings in full.

I have unreservedly apologised for the way I handled and approached the inquiry.

And I am pleased that the committee has fully dismissed all of the allegations made against me.

Separately, I have already apologised and repaid an over-claim of my expenses, having myself drawn the committee’s attention to the matter immediately I was aware of it.

I have always sought to do the best job that I can in representing the people of Basingstoke in Westminster.

I am devastated that this has happened, and that I have let you down.

I can only hope that over time the focus will once again by on Basingstoke.”
