Tory MP questioned over claims he forged £700 worth of expenses invoices

Expenses: Chris Davies.

Chris Davies is my local MP. He was quick to libel me when the accusations of anti-Semitism against me first gained press attention – now claims that he forged his expenses are coming to a head.

It will be interesting to see what the outcome says about Mr Davies’ honesty and integrity.

Police have questioned a Tory MP over claims he forged £700 worth of expenses invoices.

Chris Davies, who is a ministerial aide, spoke voluntarily to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) on Tuesday, after being referred by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) over a claim for pictures for his constituency office.

It is understood that he is accused of manually creating two invoices for £450 and £250 rather than submitting the full £700 claim by computer.

He has previously said that he repaid the £450 sum, which was charged to a start-up fund for new MPs to set up offices.

Letters seen by the Mail on Sunday claimed that one of the invoices was for furniture – but it was claimed to be from a photography firm.

In a summary of the allegations in a letter from Conservative Party HQ, it said it appeared he was “concerned the invoice may be rejected as excessive” and he “fabricated” it through as two smaller ones instead.

    Typical greedy Tory he’s been a Tory for a while & is still learning all the tricks of the trade.
    Anyone else such as me would probably go to prison.. To me it’s theft..

    come on a Tory MP fabricating something surely that’s the norm if every Tory who fabricated something was prosecuted the courts would be jammed to overflowing and then we might have a chance of legal aid being restored they would find a way to fiddle that the thieving rats
