Cox ‘does not believe’ he breached rules by using MP office for legal work

Former Cabinet minister Sir Geoffrey Cox said he does not believe he has breached parliamentary rules after a video emerged appearing to show him undertaking external work from his Westminster office. Labour has referred Sir Geoffrey to the Commons standards commissioner after The Times reported that the practising barrister used his MP office in September to participate remotely to advise the British Virgin Islands over a corruption probe launched by the Foreign Office. The QC, in a statement issued on his website, defended his decision to work with the islands and said he would co-operate with any investigation into his conduct.
