Nafeza 2 world - But on Friday a spokesperson said: "We have reviewed Mr Ross's travel claims, relating to the allegations made in the press, and met with him to discuss the issues that have been raised.

"Following this review, we are satisfied that the claims were within IPSA's rules and no further action is required."

Under UK parliamentary rules, MPs can only claim travel from their home airport.

In Mr Ross' case this was either Inverness or Aberdeen when he was MP for Moray.

According to the Sunday Mail, concerns had been raised by aides regarding 28 of his claims, including a number of parking fees.

When the story emerged Mr Ross said that he had "no issue" with the claims being examined again.

The weekend allegations followed a row over Mr Ross' selection for the Aberdeenshire North and Moray East seat.

The surprise announcement came after the party effectively de-selected David Duguid as the Conservative candidate in Aberdeenshire North and Moray East.

The Scottish Conservatives have been contacted for comment on the IPSA decision.
