Speaker’s Statement

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

Several right hon. and hon. Members have raised with me the matter of the search of a Member’s office. The House has recently come to a decision that the matter should be considered by a specially appointed Committee. The House has also determined that the Committee must not in any way prejudice any police inquiry or any potential criminal proceedings. There is, therefore, not yet a basis on which to nominate that Committee, since consideration of criminal proceedings is still under way.
