Edward Miliband never rebelled against their party in this parliament
The reputation of every Member of this House is damaged when we see revelations such as those that we have in the past couple of days. Can I take it from the Government’s amendment today on second jobs that the Prime Minister is proposing no change to the current system?

This is what he wrote in 2009: “Being a Member of Parliament must be a full-time commitment…The public deserves nothing less.” He went on to say: “Double-jobbing MPs won’t get a look-in when I’m in charge”. What has changed?
