Stories involving Michael Fallon

Sevenoaks MP Michael Fallon has been appointed as deputy chairman of the Conservative party. Mr Fallon, who chairs the Treasury select sub-committee, succeeds Lord Ashcroft, who resigned his post earlier this week.


Labour's Eric Joyce has released a statement saying he had "the highest respect for the public" after he was criticised for claiming voters were "liars". Conservative deputy chairman earlier said Mr Joyce had shown "contempt for the electorate" with his remarks.


Two leading Conservative MPs are to stand against each other next week for the chairmanship of the Treasury Select Committee, according to The Times.
