I’m looking forward to clearing my name, says sacked minister Conor Burns

The prime minister is expected to hold a series of meetings with anxious Tory backbenchers as they arrive back in Westminster tomorrow following their break for the party conference season.

One MP who’s confirmed to Channel 4 News he won’t be returning to parliament though is Conor Burns – who was sacked from his role as trade minister on Friday after an allegation of serious misconduct.
