David Lammy under investigation over financial declaration conduct

Labour’s shadow foreign secretary David Lammy is under investigation by Parliament’s Standards Commissioner.

The probe relates to alleged breaches of the MPs’ Code of Conduct on declaring financial interests worth over £27,000.

According to the Commissioner’s website, the investigation into the MP was opened on 15 June and relates to alleged late declaration of earnings and hospitality.

Last week it was revealed that Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was set to be investigated by the Commissioner over claims he may have breached earnings and gifts rules.

A spokesperson for the leader of the opposition said Sir Keir: “has already apologised for the fact that administrative errors in his office have led to a small number of late declarations.”

Home Office minister Chris Philp and former housing minister Andrew Bridgen also remain under investigation by the Commissioner.
