NEWS STORY : MPs Vote to Suspend Peter Bone from the House of Commons


MPs backed the recommendations of a report by the Parliament’s Independent Expert Panel which said that Peter Bone, the Conservative MP for Wellingborough, should be suspended from the House for a period of six weeks. The decision means that there will now likely be a by-election held in the constituency as a recall petition will be started which will trigger a fresh election if 10% of constituents sign it. Bone, aged 70, was first elected as a Conservative MP in 2005 and he has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct which have been made against him.
