Former Minister Owen Paterson could be suspended from the Commons for 30 days after an MP watchdog discovered he had “repeatedly” used his position as a deputy for the benefit of two companies that paid him as a consultant.
The watchdog described his actions as “a striking case of paid legal aid”.

“I am not guilty and a fair trial would drive me out,” he added.
