PARLIAMENTARY REFORMS

That this House records its disappointment at five wasted years in which the Coalition Government has failed to reform the parliamentary abuses that continue to undermine the reputation of politics, such as cash for access to politicians and cash for peerages continuing unabated, 99 per cent of corporate lobbying untouched by legislation, the arbitrary unjust Honours system, further degraded with the creation of a new political honours committee dominated by whips, a complete failure to limit moonlighting by hon. Members in outside jobs and the revolving door to retirement riches uncontrolled by the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments, which remains a toothless watchdog without powers to police the prostitution of insider knowledge of departing hon. Members and civil servants; and calls on the next Government to bring in robust reforms that will rebuild Parliament's reputation for probity.
