Speaker's advice to MPs on dispute with Mike Ashley

The Speaker sets out the action MPs could take against Sports Direct's Mike Ashley, who is refusing to give evidence in Parliament about how his workers are treated.

Mr Ashley, who is also the owner of Newcastle United, has been warned he could be held in contempt if he refuses to give evidence to the Commons business committee.

Mr Ashley has declined the invitation to give evidence, accusing MPs of "showboating" and inviting them to visit his firm's Derbyshire headquarters.
