Conservative leadership candidate Andrea Leadsom has revealed she smoked cannabis while at university.

The former leader of the Commons was responding to questions about her past drug use, following the revelation that leadership rival Michael Govehad taken cocaine.

Ms Leadsom, 56, said she had never taken cocaine or any other class drug and had never smoked cannabis – which she referred to as “weed” – since leaving Warwick University, where she read political science in the 1980s.

“I have never taken cocaine or Class A drugs,” she told The Independent. “Everyone is entitled to a private life before becoming an MP. I smoked weed at university and have never smoked it again since.”
