Alex Davies-Jones is facing a lobbying probe

Breaching the strict rules around lobbying can result in a suspension from the Commons.

The ally of Sir Keir Starmer allegedly breached “paid advocacy” rules in the MP code of conduct.

New Parliament's ethics chief Daniel Greenberg launched the probe this afternoon.

The Welsh MP declined to comment when approached by the Sun.

It is understood Ms Davies-Jones referred herself for investigation for asking a question in the Commons about British Council funding – shortly after taking a all-expensed trip with the organisation to Japan.

Labour insiders are bracing for a minor breach of the lobbying rules.

An MP using their position to lobby for an outside company – from which they benefit – is against the rules.

The offence is what saw Owen Paterson blasted and ultimately resign from Parliament.
