MP Patrick Mercer 'offered Commons security pass'
New footage released by BBC Panorama shows Patrick Mercer MP appearing to agree to provide a parliamentary pass that would have given access to Westminster to someone chosen by an undercover BBC reporter.
Mr Mercer told the reporter, who was posing as a lobbyist, that it would simply require a brief meeting with the MP and standard vetting for him to hand over his spare pass.
