Police investigate deputy leader’s election expenses
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.”
