Milton Keynes South-west Conservative MP Barry Legg is former chairman of finance with the authority and one of nine former Westminster councillors already threatened with surcharge over the so-called 'votes for homes' affair.
The case is mentioned in tonight's programme which cites evidence that families were moved to the contaminated flats as part of an alleged gerrymandering strategy designed to keep potential Labour voters out of marginal wards.
Six years before the families were moved in the council had been warned by an environmental health officer that asbestos should be removed as a matter of urgency. A council committee decided it should be stripped away and as tenants moved out most flats were sealed.
Shirley Porter, council leader at the time, says it is monstrous to suggest that families were knowingly dumped in unsafe buildings.
