Zahawi on standards review and Paterson case ‘mistake’

A minister said admitting a mistake over plans to regulate MPs was the “right thing” and the “grown-up thing” to do.

Nadhim Zahawi said it was wrong to “conflate” the case of Owen Paterson with a wider review about the policing of MPs’ behaviour.

A planned shake-up of the standards was abandoned after criticism from opposition MPs who refused to take part, and Mr Paterson has since resigned from Parliament.
