On the question of Conservative ethics, Chris Grayling was uncharacteristically reticent when I raised the recommendation from the noble Lord Neill that there should be an investigation into whether the ministerial code should apply to Opposition Members. Will the Minister at least consider those recommendations to avoid impropriety on either side—not to engage in party political point scoring—and to make sure that the probity of the House, Ministers and shadow Ministers is always maintained?
