What happens if...

#1
...a MP says one thing in court and provides a contradicting explanation in Parliament?

Would parliamentary privilege prevent them from perjury proceedings or does it just apply to libels?

I am aware that there is a High Court case ongoing (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4683927.stm) but this is a purely hypothetical question!


It would be good to hear of a New Liabour ex-minister getting their hoop (involuntarily) stretched (oops better stop there)

There must be a case for impeachment, either he lied to Parliament or to the court. Start parliamentry proceedings against him ASAP, if he denies that he lied to parliament then he MUST have lied to the court and his evicence is tainted.

Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word.

Under the patronage system of New Labour, being deceitful, untrustworthy and dishonest usually means a swift return to the Cabinet or a cushy EU Commissioners Job, so I don't know what this hypothetical individual is worried about-unless someone told him to do it...........

I think you can't actually commit a crime in the house of commons (in terms of liable, slander, lying etc). Lying is just "frowned upon" and you "shouldn't lie to the house or its committees", according to an interview on the radio. The most that can happen is he gets a slapped wrist and maybe made to resign their seat!
