Chancellor George Osborne has said he "completely agrees" with the Prime Minister over Maria Miller.
He agreed with Mr Cameron that she "is doing a good job as the culture secretary, has apologised and re-paid the money she has been asked to pay."
Maria Miller handed in her resignation today, saying the row over her expenses had become 'an enormous distraction'.
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 son of a Pakistani immigrant, the newly-appointed Culture Secretary has been tipped by some as a future Conservative leader.
