Pre-IPSA accommodation claims of Maria Miller

Request

It was reported in the media that the cabinet minister Maria Millar claimed £90,000 for her parent’s property which she was not entitled to.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, what action has been taken against this MP for claiming Taxpayer’s money – and if not why not?
