The Committee on Standards has announced that it will carry out a comprehensive and far-reaching inquiry into the operation of the Code of Conduct for Members of Parliament. It will do this in liaison with the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards who will carry out an independent review of the Code. The Committee’s inquiry will include a series of public oral evidence sessions, to be held in autumn 2020. This will be the first stage in a multi-stage process of preparing a new text of the Code, and the associated Guide to the Rules, for approval by the House.
This inquiry is currently accepting evidence
The committee wants to hear your views. We welcome submissions from anyone with answers to the questions in the call for evidence. You can submit evidence until Thursday 22 October 2020.
