PRESS NOTICE FROM THE COMMITTEE ON STANDARDS AND PRIVILEGES
The Committee on Standards and Privileges is concerned at recent press reports implying a lack of impartiality on the part of its Chairman in relation to proceedings leading up to its unanimous report on the conduct of Mr Derek Conway MP.
It is the long-standing practice of the House that its Select Committees deliberate in private. The Committee nonetheless wishes to make clear that these press reports are without foundation.
