Owen Paterson news – live: Boris Johnson U-turns with new vote on suspending MP and scrapping sleaze overhaul
The Independent says Boris Johnson’s government has completed a full U-turn on yesterday’s vote to set aside recommendations Owen Paterson be suspended over paid lobbying and subsequently set up a new sleaze system for parliament.
Now a new vote will take place allowing MPs to decide on Mr Paterson’s suspension and undo the creation of Andrea Leadsom’s new standards regime. The plan, for which the government whipped its MPs sparking a huge backlash, did not even get off the ground on Thursday.
