'The Code Of Conduct Together With The Guide To The Rules Relating To The Conduct Of Members HC 1076)' provides a set of rules to which Members must adhere. Some of these rules are supported by more detailed guidance. Those set out in this Guide related to the registration and declaration of interests, and to paid lobbying.

The Guide also sets out the procedure for inquiries by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. The Guide to the Rules and amendments to it are approved by means of Resolutions of the House of Commons. This Guide therefore carries the authority of the House. The House has agreed that its previous resolutions in relation to the conduct of Members shall be read and given effect in a way which is compatible with the Code of Conduct and this Guide to the Rules relating to the conduct of Members.

The Guide is structured as follows:

  • Chapter 1 of the Guide explains the requirements in relation to the registration of Members' financial interests;

  • Chapter 2 explains the requirements in relation to the declaration of interests in proceedings of the House and on other occasions;

  • Chapter 3 sets out the restrictions on Members engaging in lobbying for reward or consideration;

  • Chapter 4 provides an outline of the Commissioner's remit, and sets out the procedures in relation to the Commissioner's inquiries.
