Select Committee on Standards and Privileges First Report


Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Sir Teddy Taylor MP

It's not my habit to write letters of this sort, but I was genuinely shocked and horrified to read that certain MPs had placed bets at 20:1 on Mr Martin to become Speaker and had then proceeded to vote for him.

Is this not wholly and completely wrong and will it not further cheapen and degrade the standing of MPs?
