Ethical Standards Policy For Employees In No.10 Downing Street

EDM number 666 in 2012-13, proposed by Paul Flynn on 31/10/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Central government, Ministers, Political parties and Standards.

That this House believes that evidence of the collapse of ethical standards in No.10 Downing Street is presented by the recent move by a senior aide to join the pay day loan company Wonga, which was censured by the Office of Fair Trading for aggressive and misleading debt collection practices, which follows the statement by the Daily Telegraph that Conservative Ministers agreed to talk to Wonga at the Conservative Party conference in exchange for payments to the Conservative Party of 1,250 for each meeting; and calls on the Government to consider introducing an ethical standards policy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
