Lord Geidt powers: PM rigging the rules to get himself off the hook

Responding to Lord Geidt's powers being published which show that the ministerial code has been watered down, Liberal Democrat Chief Whip Wendy Chamberlain MP said:

"This is an appalling attempt by Boris Johnson to rig the rules to get himself off the hook.

"It seems the Conservatives have learnt nothing from the Owen Paterson scandal.

"The Prime Minister shouldn't be allowed to decide on his own punishment - with zero accountability. This is making him judge and jury in his own case.

"If the privileges committee finds Boris Johnson lied to Parliament, surely Conservative MPs will have no choice but to sack him."
