Former Labour minister Denis MacShane is facing suspension from the Commons for a year over a string of illegitimate expenses claims running to thousands of thousands.
The MP, who was suspended from the Labour party this morning, said he was "shocked and saddened" that his political career had been destroyed and was now considering his position.
The Committee on Standards and Privileges said that it recommended the punishment after finding Mr MacShane submitted 19 false invoices "plainly intended to deceive" Parliament's expenses authority.
