And then there was Maples. Outside the Government but still on the benches. Maples should be known as the man who introduced premium bonds and the MOT. But no he will forever be known for corruption. He held 80% of the shares in a road building company when Minister of Transport , responsible for road building. His name came up in the Profumo prostitution ring . He fled to Monaco in 75, with several million in notes. Wanted for Tax fraud by the Inland Revenue and for repairs by the tenants in his slum houses.
