How MPs voted on the controversial standards reform to protect Owen Paterson

The Tory government has again been hit with scandal and uproar after MPs on Wednesday controversially voted for an amendment that saw their colleague avoid a suspension and possible by-election.

The former cabinet minister and MP for North Shropshire, Owen Paterson, was deemed to have repeatedly lobbied ministers and officials from two companies, who were paying him more than £100,000 per year.

A cross-party Standards Committee’s called for Paterson to be banned from parliament for six weeks however an amendment brought forward by former Commons leader Andrea Leadsom was backed by Boris Johnson who questioned whether the investigation into Paterson’s dealings was fair.

So, the amendment was brought to a vote on Wednesday for MPs and passed by 248 votes to 231. The result was immediately condemned by opposition MPs and anti-corruption campaigners with Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner accusing the Tories of “wallowing in sleaze.”
