David Cameron has insisted Maria Miller is not still in post because she is a state educated women.

The Prime Minister brushed off claims that the beleaguered Culture Secretary has kept her job because of the shortage of female faces round the Cabinet table, saying she was doing a “good job”.

Mr Cameron also said he was “very open” to suggestions about how the system of policing MPs’ expenses could be improved.
