The majority of MPs voted not to refer Jeremy Hunt MP (Conservative, South West Surrey), then the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport to the Independent Adviser on Ministers’ Interests to investigate if he had breached the Ministerial Code.

The defeated motion, moved by Harriet Harman MP (Labour, Camberwell and Peckham), read[1]:

  • That this House
  • believes that the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport should be referred to the Independent Adviser on Ministers’ Interests to investigate whether he breached paragraph 1.2c (giving accurate and truthful information to Parliament) and paragraph 3.3 (responsibility for his special adviser) of the Ministerial Code.
