Motion text

That this House notes the investigation and findings on the Owen Paterson case by the independent Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards and Committee on Standards Report published on 26 October 2021, HC797; is concerned that the former Member was able to cast a vote on a motion relating to his own suspension; recognises that there is a conflict of interest inherent in Members voting on motions relating to their own conduct; notes that the Prime Minister is being investigated by the Privileges Committee in relation to his own conduct in the House; and calls on the Government to urgently bring forward a motion for consideration by the House proposing amendments to Standing Orders to prevent Members voting on motions relating to their own conduct.
