SUSPEND PHILIP SAWFORD SAYS CHOPE

Statement by Christopher Chope, vice-chairman of the Conservative party, on reports of misconduct by Philip Sawford, Labour MP for Kettering:

'I am beginning to lose count of the number of Labour MPs who have been accused of misconduct since the election. None of these revelations speak highly for the character of New Labour and Mr Blair's claims to occupy the moral high-ground look more unconvincing every day. With their huge majority, Labour seem to think they can behave however they like. The latest allegations are very serious and Mr Blair should add Philip Sawford to the growing list of suspended Labour MPs, while it is investigated.'
