An MP has called for a "misleading" Facebook page about former Derby North MP Amanda Solloway to be taken down.
Pauline Latham, the MP for Mid Derbyshire, said the page continued to "pursue" Ms Solloway (pictured above) over the collapse of Compass, as she is the wife of a former director.
Ms Latham told Parliament: "The page continues to pursue Amanda Solloway, but never mentions any other directors or their wives."
In response, Commons Speaker John Bercow said it was beyond his power to have a Facebook page removed but encouraged Ms Latham to raise the concerns with the social media company.

You might have caught a discussion on BBC Radio 4's PM programme this week on what to do about £4bn of repairs needed to renovate the Palace of Westminster.
Labour MP for Derby North, Chris Williamson, has tweeted a rather radical solution - moving Parliament from London to the Midlands or the North.
The Grade I listed building and Unesco World Heritage site, which mostly dates back to the mid 1800s, faces irreversible damage without significant restoration.
A joint committee of MPs and peers, which was set up to specifically look at the options, advised the most cost-effective solution was for everyone to move out while the works were completed.
Pauline Latham, Conservative MP for Mid Derbyshire, is against the move. She said: "Once we leave we'll never go back."
