Barred by Labour from being official candidates

Labour's National Executive Committee barred five MPs from standing as official Labour Party candidates at the next general election in the wake of the United Kingdom Parliamentary expenses scandal.[103][104] However, they could stand as independent candidates. Three of these MPs, David Chaytor, Margaret Moran and Elliot Morley, have stated that they will be standing down as MPs. Another, Ian Gibson, resigned his seat, causing a by-election in Norwich North that was won by the Conservatives. The fifth, Jim Devine, stated that he was considered standing as an independent candidate, but did not in the end put himself forward.[105][106]
