Galloway Faces Suspension

George Galloway, the independent MP and anti-war campaigner, faces suspension from the Commons this week.

The Committee on Standards and Privileges is set to suspend Galloway, a former Labour MP who now sits for the Respect Party, over a charity he is associated with.

Galloway was rebuked last month by a charity watchdog for failing properly to vet donations made to the charity.

The Charity Commission found donations to the Respect MP's Mariam appeal, totalling tens of thousands of pounds, were funded with money linked to the United Nations oil-for-food scandal.

The commission concluded that the money was used for humanitarian causes.
