Committee on Standards and Privileges

The main role of the Committee on Standards and Privileges is to consider the standard of conduct of MPs. If an MP is alleged to have breached the Code of Conduct, the Committee on Standards and Privileges can investigate. The committee takes advice from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards when it considers complaints.
