There are calls tonight for Maria Miller to step down as MP for Basingstoke. It follows her resignation from the Cabinet yesterday over her expenses.
The UKIP leader Nigel Farage says she should resign and a by-election should be called.
UKIP came fourth in Basingstoke in the last General Election. Meanwhile Mrs Miller says she's donating her cabinet pay-off believed to be £17,000 to a local charity.
It is possible that the Chancellor had come to a different conclusion from the PM as to which way the Maria Miller crisis was going.
The resignation of Culture Secretary following sustained pressure shows that, five years on, fury over expenses has only grown.
Maria Miller's resignation letter has been made public, along with David Cameron's response.
