Labour asks Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to investigate Newark MP Robert Jenrick

Labour is calling for an investigation into whether Newark MP Robert Jenrick broke the code of conduct for MPs over his role in approving a £1bn property development.

As Housing Secretary, Mr Jenrick approved the 1,500-home scheme at the former Westferry printing works, in London's Isle of Dogs, against a planning inspector's recommendation.
