Parliament’s “Monitoring Officer” investigates only 10% of complaints

“The Commons standards commissioner investigates just one in ten complaints about MPs, it can be disclosed.

Kathryn Hudson’s office has been asked to consider almost 300 formal complaints by members of the public and other MPs in more than two years but has opened just 29 investigations, a Telegraph analysis has found.

Mrs Hudson was this week left facing fresh questions over her judgment when a High Court judge found that Tim Yeo, an MP she cleared, was willing to act in breach of Commons rules.”
