Summary by editor: MT was accused yesterday by Finchley Liberal Agent, Frank Davis, of overspending her £882 election allowance, with nine days still to go before polling. He warned he would attempt to have her ‘disqualified’.

MT (a barrister) replied last night: “I'm not worried about this. The time to consider expenses is after the election.”
