Tory MP Colonel Bob Stewart said: “Remembrance Sunday is about remembering those who have fallen in battle for whatever country they fought for as young men and women.

“It is wrong to claim for a wreath to commemorate.’

Ms De Cordova said the claim was lodged with The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) as a mistake.

She added: “This should not have happened and was the result of an administrative error.

“I am deeply sorry, and I would like to put on record my utmost respect for all those who have sacrificed their lives in armed conflict.”
