It transpires that Cash rented his daughter’s flat even though he owned an apartment in Pimlico which was apparently not being used at the time*. Here is the story in full.
UPDATE, 11am FRIDAY
David Cameron says that Cash has “very serious questions” to answer.
This could indicate that the veteran eurosceptic is for the chop. If so, however, it is likely to raise further questions about whether Cameron is coming down harder on the “old guard” than his younger “modernisers”.
* Cash has just explained (11.40am) that the Pimlico flat was occupied by his son at the time. Thus the fog lifts somewhat.
It still seem however that there will be more “Questions for Cash” (joke copyright Nigel Morris, Independent). ie, how come you didn’t live in Pimlico and let your son pay his own way somewhere else?
