Sportingbet has made Tony McNulty odds-on to lose his seat at the next General Election, following the controversy over his housing expenses claim.

Tony McNulty, the senior minister at the centre of an expenses row, has been reported to the parliamentary watchdog over his housing expenses claims.

The Conservatives made a formal complaint to John Lyon, the Commissioner for Standards, over £60,000 of payments made under the Commons second home allowance on a house in which Mr McNulty's parents live.

The row has shone a fresh spotlight on MPs' second home allowances, with particular attention on claims by members representing seats in outer London and the surrounding suburbs, who are entitled to the payments even though many are a short commute from Westminster.

Sportingbet has the Conservatives at 1/7 favorites to win the next General Election, Labour party at 4/1, and the Lib Dems at 150/1.

British Bookmaker William Hill is offering 5/1 that McNulty will be ordered to pay back any of his housing expenses - longer odds than the 4/1 they are offering about Sir Fred Goodwin doing likewise with his pension pot.
