Neil Hamilton, the former Tory MP, will today deliver by hand to the Commons a 30-page letter denying accusations made in Sir Gordon Downey's report into parliamentary sleaze.

He is expected to question the logic of the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner and to challenge MPs to interrogate Sir Gordon on his findings. Two weeks ago Sir Gordon's three-volume, 900-page report found "compelling" evidence that Mr Hamilton took cash from Mohamed Al Fayed, the Harrods boss, in return for lobbying services. Mr Hamilton denies the claims.
