MPs have "no other option" but to support stripping Sir Philip Green of his knighthood given his failure to take action over the BHS pension fund, a Conservative MP has said.
During a Commons debate on the issue, Richard Fuller suggested Sir Philip had failed "to find his moral compass" in not addressing the chain's pension deficit over the summer.
Mr Fuller, who served on the Commons Business Select Committee which investigated the BHS' collapse, said:
"We do not make the final decision, but I think it is worthy and honourable for this House to have a view about Sir Phillip Green.
"Over the summer, Sir Phillip has had the opportunity to find his moral compass, to do the right thing.
"In the absence of that, the House has no other option but to support the amendment and the motion."
Mr Fuller tabled the amendment,signed by more than 110 MPs, recommending Sir Philip's knighthood be cancelled and annulled.
Given that the unanimous vote by MPs today was not binding, what are the chances of Sir Philip Green being stripped of his knighthood?
What Green did is not unique. He is a one-man version of the very substantial and global private-equity industry.
Sir Philip Green said he wanted to "sort" the BHS pensions scheme months ago but regulators say they are yet to receive a "credible" offer.
