MPs? outside interests

When asked about MPs? outside interests, the Prime Minister?s Official Spokesman (PMOS) reiterated the Prime Minister?s comments that he did not view a Chamber full of professional politicians with no outside experience as a good thing. He said the Prime Minister had also said that there needed to be proper rules around transparency and disclosure.

The PMOS pointed out that the government had legislated on lobbying, and said it was right that the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner would investigate where concerns were raised about transparency and disclosure with regard to MPs and their interests.

When asked about the Chairmanship of the Intelligence and Security Committee, the PMOS noted that the appointment of that role was now, as a result of changes made by this government, a matter for the House of Commons as a whole.
