Matt Hancock, the former health secretary, is among those who have regained their status within the parliamentary party. Mr. Hancock’s suspension came as a result of his unauthorised participation in the television show “I’m A Celebrity,” which he joined without obtaining permission for his absence from parliamentary duties.

The second MP to have the whip restored is Bob Stewart, who had voluntarily surrendered it following a conviction for a racially aggravated public order offence. However, Mr Stewart’s conviction was overturned on appeal in February, clearing the way for his return to the party fold.
