06 December 2013

The House Committee has published a report which proposes that the Committee for Privileges and Conduct be granted new sanctions, to be used should the Committee choose to, when a Member of the House is found to be in breach of the Code of Conduct.

The sanctions proposed are:

  1. denial of access for a specified period to the system of financial support for Members; and
  2. denial of access for a specified period to the facilities of the House.

The House accepted the committee's recommendations on 16 January.
