Conduct Committee reports on registration of members’ foreign interests

30 November 2020

The Conduct Committee has published a report today, 30 November, proposing changes to how members are required to register their links with foreign governments and connected organisations and individuals. These changes would supplement a number of measures already agreed by the House to increase the transparency of members’ foreign interests.


Members already have to register all paid work, but if this report is agreed it will require members also to register annually the amount of money they earn from governments of foreign states (including departments and agencies), organisations which may be thought by a reasonable member of the public to be foreign state-owned or controlled, and individuals with official status (whether executive, legislative or judicial) in foreign states when acting in that capacity.

The House will be asked to agree the report on Wednesday 2 December.
