TORY PARTY CONFIRMS MOVES AGAINST MEPs
The Tory Party has confirmed that
disciplinary proceedings have begun
against two of its MEPs.
A spokesman said Brendan Donnelly and
John Stevens faced expulsion from the
European parliamentary party.
The action follows reports that the
pair were involved in an Evening
Standard poll on attitudes to Europe.
Mr Stevens, who admitted "doing some
private polling", told the BBC's Today
programme he was surprised by the move.
