Jess Phillips once again under investigation over outside earnings

Jess Phillips is under investigation by a parliamentary watchdog into her declaration of outside earnings.

It comes after the Labour MP was last year reprimanded by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards for repeatedly declaring financial interests late.

The watchdog found she breached the MPs’ Code of Conduct by “inadvertently” declaring tens of thousands of pounds outside the 28-day deadline.

MPs are required to “always be open and frank in drawing attention to any relevant interest” earned from outside Parliament under the Code of Conduct.

Ms Phillips has been contacted for comment.
