MPs who are arrested will not be named
Ministers were accused of hypocrisy last night after ensuring that the names of politicians who have been arrested will no longer be published.
Supporters of the change said that it would mean that MPs were treated like any other members of the public.
A parliamentary review found that no longer publishing the names would protect “the right of members to privacy” under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
The change was laid before parliament by Chris Grayling, the Commons leader who has been a fierce critic of the human rights Act.
