§ Sir Ivan Lawrence
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further consideration he has given to the recommendation from the Committee on Standards in Public Life, in its first report, that the law relating to bribery of hon. Members of Parliament should be clarified. 
§ Mr. Howard
I have today published a paper on this subject, and have placed copies in the Library. I have also sent copies to the House of Commons Committee on Standards and Privileges, and the House of Lords Committee for Privileges.
