Chris Bryant on free James Bond tickets for Priti Patel

An MP was unimpressed with the reason given for the home secretary being gifted free tickets to a film premiere.

Labour’s Chris Bryant was asking about the £2,000 hospitality package from the Jamaican tourist board.

After Commons leader Mark Spencer tried to justify the gift, Paymaster General Michael Ellis explained it was “connected to the executive function”, leading to laughter from Mr Bryant and others at the standards committee.
