Committee on Standards (2 Dec 2021)

Chris Bryant: ...process of enforcing the rules and adjudicating cases, we have heard the complaints that there is no formal process of appeal at present. We were actually considering this for some time before the Owen Paterson case. We dispute that there is no process of appeal at the moment. Owen Paterson appealed the decision of the Commissioner for Standards to our Committee, and we took his evidence...

Business of the House (2 Dec 2021)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...weeks ago, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, a Humble Address motion was passed by this House, so the Government must now publish any and all of the minutes from the meeting between Lord Bethell, Owen Paterson and Randox over the award of a contract that involves hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money. As the Leader of the House knows, the Government must do that in a timely...

Conduct of the Right Hon. Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (30 Nov 2021)

Stephen Flynn: ...continue to plummet. That is before we get to the reality of the corruption and sleaze we have seen in the past few weeks and months, with the VIP lanes for Tory friends, families and donors, the Owen Paterson scandal and the fact that people with £3 million can get themselves a seat in the House of Lords. It is not just at home that the Prime Minister’s reputation is plummeting; it is...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Owen Paterson (26 Nov 2021)

Angela Rayner: To ask the Prime Minister, when he last met Mr Owen Paterson, the former Rt Hon. Member for North Shropshire.

Anneliese Dodds: ...ago, this House agreed: “That an Humble Address be presented to Her Majesty”— to lay before the House— “the minutes from or any notes of the meeting of 9 April 2020 between Lord Bethell, Owen Paterson and Randox representatives, and all correspondence, including submissions and electronic communications… relating to the Government contracts for services provided by medical...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (18 Nov 2021)

Rachael Maskell: After the Owen Paterson scandal, where the Government did not like the fair process that was set up and just ripped up the rules, now the Government have changed the job description for the chair of Ofcom to give failed candidate Paul Dacre another go and put a lobbyist whose firm has represented Facebook, Apple and Sky on the panel to scrutinise candidates. Will the Secretary of State...

Strengthening Standards in Public Life (17 Nov 2021)

Matt Western: ...with a heavy heart that I consider the actions of some Members of this House in the past 14 days that run counter to the very foundations of public service, with the most egregious case being Owen Paterson and his blatant prioritisation of private, corporate interests over and above those of his constituents, for his own gain. Owen Paterson’s actions grate against every single one of the...

Opposition Day: Randox Covid Contracts (17 Nov 2021)

Maggie Throup: Her Majesty, that she will be graciously pleased to give directions that there be laid before this House the minutes from or any notes of the meeting of 9 April 2020 between Lord Bethell, Owen Paterson and Randox representatives, and all correspondence, including submissions and electronic communications, addressed or copied to, or written by or on behalf of, any or all of the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Nov 2021)

Keir Starmer: the north that the Prime Minister will not stand by. No wonder trust in the Prime Minister is at an all-time low. Across the country, and belatedly across this House, there is now agreement that Owen Paterson broke the rules and that the Government should not have tried to let him off the hook. Many Government Members have apologised— the Business Secretary has apologised for his...

Committee on Standards (16 Nov 2021)

Chris Bryant: It is three weeks since the Standards Committee produced our report on the conduct of Owen Paterson. It detailed a catalogue of bad behaviour. The evidence was stark and compelling. He repeatedly engaged in paid lobbying. He peddled influence for his paying clients. He repeatedly used his parliamentary office to run a commercial enterprise. Every single MP I have spoken to who has read the...

Committee on Standards (15 Nov 2021) the Third Report of the Committee on Standards (HC 797) and the appointment of a new select committee; (2) approves the Third Report of the Committee on Standards (HC 797); and (3) notes that Mr Owen Paterson is no longer a Member of this House.—(Stuart Andrew.)

Ministerial Code - Question (9 Nov 2021)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ..., ignoring the judgment of the independent adviser on allegations of bullying by the Home Secretary, or the shenanigans that have brought shame on Parliament as the Government attempted to defend Owen Paterson and defy the Commons standards commissioner and the committee, there is increasing evidence that this Prime Minister considers the rules to be for other people and not to apply to...

Points of Order (9 Nov 2021)

Chris Bryant: ...and last week’s proceedings, to table a motion, rescinding the decision to set up the special committee and approving the third report of the Select Committee on Standards on the conduct of Mr Owen Paterson, for debate some time next week. Have you had any notice that that is the Government’s intention, or of what day they intend to do that? Obviously we will not have a business...

Business Before Questions: New Writ (9 Nov 2021) issue his Warrant to the Clerk of the Crown to make out a New Writ for the electing of a Member to serve in this present Parliament for the County Constituency of North Shropshire in the room of Owen William Paterson, who since his election for the said County Constituency has been appointed to the Office of Steward and Bailiff of Her Majesty’s Manor of Northstead in the County of...

Committee on Standards: Decision of the House (8 Nov 2021)

David Jones: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Dwyfor Meirionnydd (Liz Saville Roberts). The former Member for North Shropshire, the right hon. Owen Paterson, served his constituency for 24 years and held some of the highest offices in Government. By any standards, what happened to him is a tragedy: he lost his career but, much worse, he lost his wife in the most distressing...

Speaker’s Statement (8 Nov 2021)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...own view of them may be. But I also feel a weighty responsibility to ensure that the House deals with these issues effectively and fairly, and that its reputation reflects that. One issue is clear. Owen Paterson has resigned as an MP, so it no longer falls to the House to decide whether he should be suspended, although I note that the House has not reached a decision on the report of the...

Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (8 Nov 2021)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...ministerial code by bullying, she gets off scot-free; when the Electoral Commission tries to investigate the Prime Minister’s flat refurbishment, it gets its wings clipped; and last week, when Mr Owen Paterson broke the rules on paid advocacy, this Government tried to do away with the rules all together. These are not one-offs. This is a pattern of behaviour. Does the Secretary of State...

Scottish Parliament: Social Security Benefits (4 Nov 2021)

Clare Adamson: ...of their own. What an insult to my constituents—and to theirs—who have been sanctioned for attending family funerals, for attending to caring responsibilities, or simply for being ill. On the Owen Paterson scandal, last night Chris Bryant quoted a Conservative colleague who had said to him: “justice should always be tempered by mercy”. —[ Official Report , House of Commons, 3...
