Conservative Party Code of Conduct for staff.


Following reports in the news of ‘concerns over the working culture in Westminster‘, The Conservative Party has issued a basic voluntary Code of Conduct, describing how staff should be treated by MPs and vice versa.

The code has not been officially published but was covered in depth by Channel 4 News after a copy was leaked to them – you can read the report, which includes a link to the text, here.

A letter sent by Sir George Young to Conservative MPs along with the Code makes the point that MPs employ staff directly and that relationship is “something which neither the House nor the Party has any legal locus upon”.
