Cameron orders Warsi visit probe
In her letter to the Prime Minister, she said "community activist" Mr Hussain was among a number of members of the Pakistani diaspora in the UK who had assisted the British High Commission with outreach events in Pakistan in July 2010.
Although it was "widely known" that he was her husband's second cousin, she said, she had not realised the need to declare that they also had "a common business interest as minority shareholders in a small food company".
Lady Warsi stressed that it was not a trade-related visit and Mr Hussain "did not gain any financial or business advantage" from his involvement, he was not part of the official delegation and no aspect of his visit was funded by the Government.
The Prime Minister said he accepted her apology but was asking Sir Alex to "consider the issues that have been raised with respect to the Ministerial Code and to provide advice to me as rapidly as possible".
