Timeline of Chris Heaton-Harris
Responding the next day to the widespread and growing criticism from both politicians and academics, universities minister Jo Johnson suggested that Heaton-Harris might have been researching a possible book on “the evolution of attitudes” to Europe, rather than acting in his role as a government minister, and “probably didn’t appreciate the degree to which (the letter) would be misinterpreted”, although there was no mention of any research for a possible book in the original letter. On the 17 February 2019, he admitted that there had never been any plans for a book.
After the resignation of Boris Johnson and the following domino resignations of Conservative ministers, on 9 July 2018 Heaton-Harris was appointed as one of three Parliamentary Under-Secretaries of State at the Department for Exiting the European Union.
In 2017, he accepted a ticket and hospitality for an NFL game at Wembley worth £479 from NFL UK.
In October 2017, the Eurosceptic Heaton-Harris wrote to the vice-chancellors of every university in the UK, requesting the names of academics lecturing on Brexit and copies of all course material, leading to claims of political interference in academic freedom, as well as censorship. The move was described as “McCarthyite” by Prof Kevin Featherstone, head of the European Institute at the London School of Economics, and “sinister” by Prof David Green, the vice-Chancellor of Worcester University who likened it to Newspeak and the Thought Police from George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four: the Dean of Durham Law School, Thom Brooks, called it “dog whistle politics at its worst”, while Lord Patten, Chancellor of Oxford University, called the letter an act of “idiotic and offensive Leninism”. In addition, the letter attracted criticism from both pro-Remain and pro-Leave academics at London’s Queen Mary and Cambridge universities and a rebuke from Downing Street.
In a separate issue documents from the House of Commons catering department released via Freedom of Information to openDemocracy show Heaton-Harris hosted an ERG breakfast meeting in October 2017, despite taking over as a government whip in July 2016. Continuing to chair the group while he was a member of the government contravenes the ministerial code, section 7.12 of which states: “Ministers should take care to ensure that they do not become associated with non-public organisations whose objectives may in any degree conflict with Government policy and thus give rise to a conflict of interest.” However, a government spokesperson stated that they did not view it as a breach.
In March 2012, Heaton-Harris was reported as being one of the Conservative MPs to have spoken critically of Party Co-Chairman Sayeeda Warsi at a meeting of the 1922 Committee, following Warsi’s handling of Roger Helmer MEP’s defection to UKIP.
Heaton-Harris accepted tickets for himself and his family to attend four events at the London 2012 Olympics relating to swimming, diving, gymnastics, plus the closing ceremony, as a gift from Coca-Cola. The value of the gifts (£11,750) was the highest amount received by any MP. He declared them in the Register of Members’ Interests.
In November 2012, covert video footage of Heaton-Harris discussing the role of James Delingpole in the Corby by-election were published on The Guardian website. The recording, made by Greenpeace, appeared to show the MP’s support for Delingpole’s independent, anti-windfarm candidacy, at a time when Heaton-Harris was engaged by the Conservatives to run the unsuccessful campaign of their own candidate, Christine Emmett.
Heaton-Harris chaired the European Research Group, a group of Eurosceptic MPs, from 2010 until November 2016. Subscriptions totalling £13,850 were claimed as a parliamentary expense. But at the same time he sat on the wide-ranging powers of the European Scrutiny Committee, set up to monitor legislation from Brussels.
Immediately prior to standing down in 2009, Heaton-Harris was the President of the Sports Intergroup, a group of approximately 40 MEPs who have an interest in sport and sporting issues.
From May 2006, he sought support within the EU legislature for a letter to FIFA demanding that the Iranian national football team be thrown out of the 2006 World Cup because of the Iranian President’s comments about the Holocaust being a lie.
Chris Heaton-Harris was a member of the Conservative A-List and was selected to succeed Tim Boswell as candidate for the safe Conservative seat of Daventry in June 2006. He won the seat in the 2010 general election, with a majority of 19,188.
Heaton-Harris was also responsible for bringing the case of Marta Andreasen, the European Commission’s Chief Accountant, to public attention back in August 2002 and has been involved in fighting fraud, mismanagement and waste within the European Commission and other European institutions.
Heaton-Harris was elected to the European Parliament in 1999 as MEP for the East Midlands, and was re-elected in 2004. He was the Chief Whip for the Conservatives in the European Parliament from 2001 to March 2004.
He worked for the family business at New Covent Garden Market, before taking over from his father as Chairman of What4 Ltd, until his election to the European Parliament. In the 1997 general election he stood in the Labour safe seat of Leicester South, coming second. He was the Conservative party’s candidate for that seat in the 2004 Leicester South by-election and came third behind the Liberal Democrat Parmjit Singh Gill and the Labour candidate.
