Laws to focus on constituency work

Former Cabinet minister David Laws said he plans to get back to work as a local MP after his dramatic resignation from the coalition Government.

The Liberal Democrat stood down as Chief Secretary to the Treasury after he admitted channelling tens of thousands of pounds of public money in rent to his long-term partner.

Mr Laws said he would now see whether he still had the "confidence" of his constituents in Yeovil, Somerset.

In a statement to local media, he said: "I have paid a high price for trying to keep my sexuality a secret. Losing your privacy, your Cabinet job and your perceived integrity within 48 hours isn't very easy.
