Councillor Duncan Kerr

Call for resignation of North Shropshire MP

27th October 2021

Shropshire Councillor Duncan Kerr has called for the resignation of Owen Paterson MP following publication of a report by the Parliamentary Standards Committee.

Councillor Kerr made the following statement:

"It is a very sad day when the parliamentary standards committee determine that for the last 6 years our local MP has placed the interests of the companies who employ him above his duties to the people of North Shropshire. The result has been a tragedy for him and for faith in democracy. The wisest course of action would be for him to resign rather than face the further ignominy of a recall petition"

Other political parties have also weighed in on the issue:
