The Daily Telegraph claims the MP for Wrekin, Shropshire - Mark Pritchard - told an undercover reporter he could use his “network” to set up meetings with politicians in countries where he had parliamentary connections.
The Conservative MP is heard in the covert footage saying: "To be completely brutal, I know the mayor, I know the prime minister, I know the speaker.“I don’t lobby. I don’t, whatever. But my network I will use.”
The newspaper claims the MP was secretly filmed offering his services as a consultant and offering to fix up meetings, including dinner with the prime minister of Malta.
The MP has denied the claims and has asked the parliamentary standards watchdog to investigate.
A Labour Party spokeswoman said:
It is right that Mr Pritchard has referred himself to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.
It is essential that the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards urgently investigate to ascertain whether or not the House of Commons Code of Conduct has been upheld in principle and practice.
