Prime Minister David Cameron has repeated his support for Culture Secretary Maria Miller, a Conservative MP who was ordered to apologise after a committee found her attitude to an inquiry into her expenses had breached the parliamentary code of conduct.

Former Tory chairman Lord Tebbit has accused the minister of "arrogance" and called for her to resign.

But Mr Cameron said Maria Miller had ''done the right thing'' by making an apology to the Commons and repaying the £5,800 which she had over-claimed for her mortgage.
