Labour supports the recall of MPs

Sadiq khan

Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, responds to the publication of the Government’s Recall of MPs Bill.

“Labour supports the recall of MPs. It was in our manifesto at the last General Election. However, we don’t want a system of recall that is solely in the hands of MPs as this will struggle to have the public’s confidence. Nor do we want a system that could give vested interests power to kick out MPs simply because they dislike the way a politician has voted on controversial issues. We will therefore be looking closely at the Government’s bill to see whether it satisfies our major areas of concern and addresses the serious issues raised by recent controversies.”
