Stories involving Nadine Dorries

Osborne shrugs of Dorries attack

George Osborne has shrugged off criticism from Tory backbencher Nadine Dorries, who he says “hasn’t agreed with anything” the party leadership has done for the last seven years.

The Chancellor told the Andrew Marr Show this morning: “She has objected to the modernising of the Conservative Party and that is her business but we’ve got to stay focussed on what really matters.”

His comments come after Ms Dorries said David Cameron will face a challenge to his leadership of the Conservative Party "by Christmas". Writing for the Mail on Sunday, she said that "party bosses only need 46 signatures to ditch the leader" adding that "they'll get them by Christmas".


Health Bill passed

The third reading of the Government's Health and Social Care Bill has been passed in the House of Commons by a majority of 65. MPs voted 316 to 251 in favour, and the Bill will now move to the House of Lords.


Four Liberal Democrats voted against the Bill, with 10 abstaining, according to Sky.


Ten Liberal Democrats, including Tim Farron, supported a Labour motion to amend the Bill to include a clause making the Secretary of State responsible for the provision of a national health service. The amendment was defeated however.


Dorries: I'm not a marriage wrecker

Nadine Dorries has denied being a marriage wrecker after it emerged she had begun a new relationship with a married man.


Sexual abstinence lessons bill withdrawn

Nadine Dorries' controversial bill calling for all teenage girls to be given lessons in sexual abstinence was pulled from the House of Commons order paper at the last minute yesterday. The bill would have required schools to offer extra sex education lessons to girls between 13 and 16, which would have included advice on "the benefits of abstinence". Ms Dorries refused to comment on whether she had withdrawn the bill, but Parliamentary procedure means a bill can only be withdrawn by the MP who proposed it.


Abortion providers fear counselling rule change

The Department of Health is considering measures which could strip abortion-providers of the opportunity to counsel women. The plans would see women referred to an independent organisation for counselling, and are backed by Conservative MP Nadine Dorries and Labour’s Frank Field. Charities including the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and Marie Stopes, which presently offer the compulsory counselling, said there is no evidence that the current system is failing and warned that changes would see women wait longer for treatment.


Tory MP Nadine Dorries reportedly cheated on Channel 4’s Tower Block of Commons by hiding £50 whilst trying to live on benefits.
