Standards & Privileges Committee
Sir Bob Russell
HC 564, First Report of Session 2012-13 - Report and Appendices, Together with Formal Minutes
- House of Commons - Committee on Standards and Privileges
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The report 'Sir Bob Russell (HC 564)' is an investigation by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration of a complaint that Sir Bob Russell, the Member for Colchester, made claims against parliamentary allowances for the rental of his constituency office from 2002-03 to 2009-2010; during which period the accommodation was owned by a company in which he and a family member held shares.
The Commissioner did find that Sir Bob Russell was in breach of the rules and that there was a misreading and misunderstanding of the rules. However the seriousness of the breach was strongly mitigated by findings in relation to disclosure.
The Committee agrees with those conclusions and has recorded the breach. No further action is recommended.
