Tory MP Nadine Dorries has been accused of "callousness" after posting a link online to a 10-year-old story about Muslims claiming benefits for multiple wives.
The MP for Mid Bedfordshire shared a post on Twitter from a supporter of the far-right anti-Islam party, For Britain, which suggested Muslim men in polygamous marriages can receive state handouts for each of their wives.
Ms Dorries posted the tweet - which included a link to a story from 2008 in the Daily Express, with the headline 'Muslims can claim benefits for several wives, say Ministers'.
She accompanied it with the comment: "Ministers, are you having a laugh?", before deleting it 11 minutes later.
