A LABOUR front bench MP is under investigation for a possible breach of lobbying rules.

The Commons Standards Commissioner Daniel Greenberg has launched an inquiry into Alex Davies-Jones, who represents Pontypridd in Wales.

It will look at whether the shadow culture minister broke the MPs' Code of Conduct with "paid advocacy".

MPs who receive a payment or other benefits like gifts must not use their position to benefit the company which gave it to them.

Breaching strict rules around lobbying can lead to a suspension in the Commons.

The offence is what saw former Tory MP Owen Paterson eventually resign from Parliament.
