Paterson resigns after Govt u-turn over conduct plan – follows furious backlash
Latest: Owen Paterson has resigned. He said he wants a life outside the cruel world of politics.
The government has done a u-turn on its plans to overhaul the policing of MPs’ conduct after a furious backlash.
On Wednesday, No 10 backed a shake-up of the standards watchdog. It blocked the suspension of one of its own former ministers, Owen Paterson.
It sparked an angry reaction from Labour and some Tory MPs, who feared it would look like corruption to voters.
MPs are now likely to vote again on whether Mr Paterson should be excluded from Parliament for 30 days.
