Stephen Byers

Asked for the Government’s view on Stephen Byers being referred to the Commons Standards and Privileges Committee, the PMOS said that it was a matter for the House to discuss. Asked if the Prime Minister was satisfied with Mr Byers’ explanation and the way it had been conducted, the PMOS said that the court had made its judgement and the judgement of the court should be respected. Stephen Byers had set out his case and the House would debate the matter today. In response to the suggestion that his comments were lukewarm support for Stephen Byers, the PMOS said that his words were not as interpreted. They simply stated the factual case.
