To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker, further to the report by the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament Russia, published on 21 July, what plans the Conduct Committee has to respond to the recommendations of that report.

I have consulted the Chair of the Conduct Committee, Lord Mance, who reports that the Committee had an initial discussion on 23 July about the ISC recommendation aimed at the House of Lords. The Committee requested a detailed paper on the rules around members working with foreign governments and the wider question of whether members should be required to disclose the amounts of money that they earn. The Committee will consider the paper in September.
