Healey Ordered To Apologise to the House

With bigger fish being fried, lots of stories are going under the radar this week. On Tuesday John Healey was ordered by the Committee on Standards and Privileges to apologise to the House. Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary sent unsolicited party-political letters to LibDem councillors about the Health and Social Care Bill using pre-paid Commons envelopes. First Healey tried to deny that he did anything wrong, then claimed he had no idea he had broken the rules, but the committee have called him out and told him to write a written letter of apology to the Commons and repay the money. Not the biggest crime in the world, but worth noting the dubious lengths that Labour went to in order to throw a spanner into Lansley’s works.
