Recall of MPs Bill — Clause 1 — If Conviction of MP for Misconduct in Public Office Should Trigger New Election — 24 Nov 2014 at 17:45

Rehman Chishti MP, Gillingham and Rainham voted against making an MP's conviction for misconduct in public office trigger a new election for an MP in that constituency.

The majority of MPs voted against making an MP's conviction for misconduct in public office trigger a new election for an MP in that constituency. This route to "recall" would have been added to the ways of triggering a new election already in the Bill which were an MP being convicted and sentenced to a period of imprisonment; or being suspended from the House of Commons for 10 sitting days (or 14 days).

MPs were considering the Recall of MPs Bill[1].

The amendment rejected in this vote stated:

  • page 2, line 9, at end insert—
  • “( ) A further recall condition (misconduct in public office) is that—
  • (a) the MP has, after becoming an MP, been convicted of the common law offence of misconduct in public office, and
  • (b) the appeal period expires without the conviction having been overturned on appeal.
  • Sections 2 to 4 contain more about this recall condition

Had it not been rejected this would have added a the above text containing the new recall condition to clause 1[2] of the Bill.

The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That the amendment be made.
