What is a Petition of Recall thumbnailIan Paisley MP.

LAST week North Antrim MP Ian Paisley was suspended from the House of Commons, for 30 sitting days, beginning on September 4, for breaching rules in relation to the Sri Lanka-gate affair.
He will now also be the subject of a Petition of Recall under the Recall of MPs Act 2015 that came into force on 4 March 2016.
The Electoral Office for Northern Ireland set the Petition of Recall process in motion after being officially notified by the Speaker of the House of Commons that Mr Paisley has been barred from the house for more than 10 sitting days.
