Jeremy Corbyn could be investigated over whether he has broken the MPs’ code of conduct.
Labour MP Neil Coyle, a long time critic of Mr Corbyn, has written to parliament’s standards commissioner claiming Mr Corbyn may have not declared the support he received to cover legal costs, mostly over the fallout from claims of antisemitism within the Labour Party.
Mr Coyle said: “All MPs are expected to follow certain rules, yet some people seem to think they’re above it.
In response, Jeremy Corbyn told reporters he would be liaising with the commissioner in response to Mr. Coyle’s correspondence.”
It’s been a busy year for Jeremy Corbyn – for all the wrong reasons! In January, he lost a court battle to force Labour to hand over documents relating to his suspension from the parliamentary party. It’s understood Labour wants to recover its legal costs from Mr Corbyn.
And more recently in March, the former Labour leader lost an appeal against a High Court decision – in a libel case brought about by a political blogger.
The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards has yet to comment.
