- The Tory cabinet minister tonight insisted his card was suspended by the Parliamentary expenses authorities ‘in error’
- All of the money which was owed by MPs has been repaid in fulL
The Work and Pensions Secretary was among more than a dozen MPs hit by the Commons expenses watchdog after failing to show the spending was valid.
A spokesman for Mr Duncan Smith tonight insisted that his card was suspended ‘in error’ and that he had repaid any bills he had incurred ‘within the required timescale’.
But the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority [IPSA] told MailOnline there had not been any error and his card had been suspended.
An IPSA spokesman said it had made a separate mistake relating to Mr Duncan Smith’s expenses in May.
