Commons speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle is tomorrow set to launch a bid to heal Westminster's bitter sleaze row.

He is considering proposing a review of the Commons' standards procedures in the wake of the Owen Paterson scandal.

Sources said the review was likely to be set up in consultation with standards committee chairman, the Labour MP Chris Bryant.

But Commons insiders said the Speaker would only make up his mind after a scheduled three-hour debate on the sleaze row.

Last night there were predictions that a review would lead to MPs found guilty of financial misdemeanours being able to appeal to a retired judge – one of the Tories' key demands in last week's stormy exchanges in the House. There are also suggestions that the review could include looking at how MPs were allowed to earn thousands of pounds from outside interests on top of their Commons' salary of £81,932.
