prior report showed consumer prices rose 5.4% on a year over year basis in September tying a 13 year high rapid inflation may abate next year according to the president of the Federal Reserve bank of San Francisco Mary Daly Maybe next summer Daly told the national association for business economics In the meantime Bloomberg geek and I'm access transport delays tied to the coronavirus and semiconductor shortages will continue pushing a variety of course higher especially new and used autos Beneath doubt should I spend birthday break Europe Here in the UK inflation is one reason Britain's are facing a financial squeeze other factors are interest rates and rising taxes and government benefits dropping the National Institute of economic and social research expects inflation will reach 5% by June and a painful squeeze on households in 2022 Meanwhile BOE deputy governor Ben broadbent told the select committee that scarcity of labor is pushing up wages suggesting worker shortages are a constraint on the economy and at 7 30 this morning the nissa director joins us on Bloomberg radio to discuss that in more detail And finally when it comes to the latest that the cock 26 summit in Glasgow the U.S. at climate envoy John Kerry says that he sees negotiations producing a deal on carbon trading rules an agreement would mark a turning point for climate diplomacy but a complex set of technical rules still needs then to be hashed out Now Kerry told Bloomberg that he remains optimistic I'm for making sure we continue with fusion We continue here We're pouring our efforts into research across international lines and I am confident Yes that we can get there Human beings created this problem human beings can solve it John Kerry there but the UK's cop 26 president alok Sharma said that macro progress is needed in the negotiations Now Boris Johnson has back to Glasgow today as we also await the first draft of the summit communique which was scheduled to drop last night While speaking of Boris Johnson's movements perhaps no surprise that he's heading up to the cop 26 summit hoping perhaps to escape Westminster and the continued fallout from the lobbying scandal that has engulfed the Conservative Party over the past two weeks after the own Patterson lobbying scandal reports now that labor are calling for a standards investigation into the former attorney general sir Jeffrey Cox Now you and Potts and I yesterday we speak to Vera hobhouse the Liberal Democrat MP for bath on Bloomberg Westminster and we began by asking her what she wants to see the government now do next Well first of all we have asked for an investigation The government keeps refusing now to have any more to say about own passion because they say that he has resigned and therefore the matter is closed But for us it isn't close because of course the whole problem is the standards of MPs and how we can improve standards and the oversight of it So we need to continue to discuss that and see the government to be on our side I think whenever these scandals happen it's not just the government or particular in peace who are being tainted but we are all tainted by the same brush It's been a real problem for all of parliament And now we have to get back and the trust of the people who elect us and we need to actually improve and tighten up our standards And that is the least we can do So look the labor suggestions of there should be no directorships no paid consultation gigs for sitting MPs How would you limit lobbying So obviously you have to look at the issue quite carefully some jobs are perfectly legitimate and possibly even useful to have MPs who have got direct experience of the outside world So we don't want to shut ourselves in our Westminster bubble But we have to look at very carefully look at jobs that might lead into direct conflict of interest Do you have any sympathy with Tory MPs who were whipped in this vote The party system we have in this country means that MPs are told they must vote for certain things Lib Dems were in government a few years ago they were whipped to voting voting to cut benefits increased tuition fees Do you have any sympathy with them In this particular instance because this business of the house it should have been a free vote So MPs can vote according to their conscience Why they didn't do that why and there were whipped all of these are questions that you have to put to the conservative government Okay there's an open democracy report an investigation that was featured in the newspapers around cash for honor's allegations also against conservatives So the issue around lobbying is sort of opened up a bit of a can of worms Should there be an investigation into that or so in your view Well I think more open we can be about all of these issues the better So investigations to see what is directly a conflict of interest to see where MPs are doing what Jeffrey Cox did and actually not do his MPs job but the absent basically and take us voters for granted All of these things will come out also about party financing I mean that's another incredibly shocking reality of British politics that you can give a lot of money to the Tory party apparently 1.3 million have been given by the fossil fuel industry to the Tory party That of course is given for a reason It influences politics It should stop So that was very hope house the Liberal Democrat MP for bath speakers me and you imports on bubba Westminster or perhaps we'll put some of those questions that Vera was mentioning to.

"Up the individual standards committee And that is cross party and let us not forget that when they deliberated when the commissioner put forward her report and then thereafter the standards committee looked at it Four of those members were actually conservative and the standards committee voted unanimously not by a majority decision but unanimously on a cross party basis that were owning partizan had done was tantamount to corruption that he had been engaged in paid lobbying He had been paid well over half a million pounds I mean the last time I said well I haven't even got a second job Let alone being a paid lobbyist So I just can not understand how these individuals or whom being an MP should be a full time low because that is what they have been elected to do to serve their constituents And yet they are too busy with the noses in the trough and lining their own pockets And this has to stop So that was turned Jumanji Singh the labor MP for slough and also the shadow rail minister also lays day 12 noon at lunchtime today on Bloomberg Westminster I'm going to be speaking to Vera hobhouse who is the Liberal Democrat MP full bath of course it was the Lib Dems who sort of got this issue going in terms of the parliamentary debate We'll also talk more about the pandemic here in the UK and across Europe who have seen Electra in vaccine epidemiologic London school of hygiene and tropical medicine will be joining me Catch that live 12 new UK type download the podcast later from Apple music or your preferred radio app But the idea of second jobs and being paid for lobbying is a story that's going to continue I suspect let's get over to Bloomberg's Leanne guerin's.

"So i of all. I appreciate Has on this but junior stop often. Fear that speaking of the damage that korea's so we have to be aware of all of that and listening to the other side and spending two hours of being made aware of how it feels like for the other side. I think is not a waste of time or money and indeed it shouldn't replace processes and robust blows gross in modest additional to it and i found it incredibly helpful but it's still not necessarily going to solve the problem.

Hr machine with an identifiable manages to the The offended party knows they have an immediate rights of access and they should use it. Do you think just just to build on that case from last week the husband calls there have been calls for the conservative. Mp to actually be made to resign mechanism for expect me to comment on the individual case about which i have no knowledge that by being as you talk about systems and at the moment that's one of the systems isn't it very hope house that people are concerned about that. If you do raise your voice that there isn't actually a mechanism to get rid of that person as well indeed. We need to have a process into which people have confidence a too often. It looks by and people are not empowered. Don't have confidence in the process. So you have to ask those people of what would be the process that would give them confidence and not again is about listening very carefully to the other side and not assuming things that i think we are not to see lord heseltine vera. Hobhouse thank you very much. The house of lords said this value. I everyone training is an important strand of the work within parliament to ensure that everyone here is able to.
