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:
- denial of access for a specified period to the system of financial support for Members; and
- denial of access for a specified period to the facilities of the House.
The House accepted the committee's recommendations on 16 January.
