MP Scott Benton Recall Petition & Possible Byelection In Blackpool South Triggered

Members of Parliament have approved a motion to suspend Blackpool South MP Scott Benton from the House of Commons for 35 days. The suspension was approved on Tuesday evening (28th February) without the need for a vote.

This 35-day suspension exceeds the 10-day threshold that triggers a recall petition and possibly a by-election. If 10% of Blackpool South constituents sign the recall petition, a byelection will be triggered in his seat.
