I have previously reported on Conservative MP David Mundell’s admission that he exceeded the election expense limit in this year’s general election.
David Mundell’s expense return showed him within the limit but wrongly classified one bill. A correct return would have shown him over the limit.
The police have decided to investigate the matter and news has just emerged that he was questioned by them several days ago.
Mundell can apply for legal relief for making the mistake, though the police’s interest suggest this is not as simple a case as most relief cases are where a simple mistake is involved but one that does not take a candidate over the legal limit.
