Police in­ves­ti­gate deputy leader’s elec­tion ex­penses

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

A com­plaint has been made to police about Lib­eral Demo­crat deputy leader Jo Swin­son’s elec­tion ex­penses.

The East Dun­bar­ton­shire MP, who was a min­is­ter in the pre­vi­ous coali­tion govern­ment, is un­der­stood to have been re­ported by one of her con­stituents.

The police have re­ceived an ini­tial com­plaint and the force is look­ing into the cir­cum­stances.

It comes af­ter Ms Swin­son took back the seat she had lost to the SNP in June’s snap gen­eral elec­tion.

A spokesman for the Lib­eral Democrats said: “All ex­pen­di­ture in this elec­tion was ap­por­tioned cor­rectly and clearly iden­ti­fied in our elec­tion re­turn which is a mat­ter of pub­lic record.”
