DISGRACED MP COULD LOSE HOME.

SHAMED Jim Devine faces a bankruptcy order that could see him lose his home.

Marion Kinley has applied for a sequestration order after he failed to pay money awarded to her for unfair dismissal.

An employment tribunal awarded her pounds 35,000 last October for breach of contract and unfair dismissal after Devine "bullied and harassed" her.

But Devine failed to pay the money.

Marion could have moved to have Devine sequestrated but rejected that idea because she didn't want to see him lose his house.

But she failed to have his pounds 30,000 House of Commons "golden goodbye" pay-off seized by bailiffs.

It had been frozen pending the outcome of Devine and other MPs' trials.

The sequestration order hearing is to be heard later this month.

Marion said: "It is my only option left. I have exhausted all other avenues."

Meanwhile, a decision on whether Devine should keep his "golden goodbye" could be made by MPs tomorrow.
