Louth and Horncastle MP and drugs minister accused of 'ridiculous conflict of interest'

Victoria Atkins has stepped back from her role of speaking about government drugs policy, as her husband runs a legal cannabis farm.

Paul Kenward runs British Sugar, which is legally growing cannabis in Norfolk for use in medicines.

The Home Office says she's already told parliament about what her husband does.

Ms Atkins has previously spoken strongly against legalising the drug.
