Thangam Debbonaire – 2021 Comments on Rob Roberts

The comments made by Thangam Debbonaire, the Shadow Leader of the House of Commons, on 24 June 2021.

Rob Roberts is hiding behind a procedural loophole but his constituents deserve a say in whether he is still fit to represent them.

To be suspended from the House for six weeks but not automatically be subject to the Recall Act shows the system is not fit for purpose, nor offering adequate protection and support for staff.

This MP should do the decent thing and resign. But for as long as the Government leave the loophole in place, they are aiding and abetting his evasive strategy. Labour will use every device available to Parliament to close the loophole.
