Minister for Speeding Banned from driving for six months

The Conservative frontbencher was fined a total of £1,639 at a court hearing on Tuesday after previously admitting he was 68 miles in a temporary 40-mile zone between junctions 18 and 17 on the southbound M1 last August driven per hour, the Courts and Tribunals Service Center said.

The case was dealt with under a Single Justice Procedure at Northampton Magistrates’ Court, which allows a judge to hear what is considered a minor criminal matter in a closed court, meaning the public and press cannot attend.

They also allow the accused to plead guilty or not guilty in writing, which meant Mr Jenrick, 41, did not have to appear in court in person.

Mr Jenrick was contacted for comment.

The MP for Newark, Nottinghamshire, was at Wakefield Cathedral after appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions when he was caught by a speed camera in his Land Rover around 11.30pm on August 5, the London Evening Standard reported.

The Evening Standard had previously said Mr Jenrick was fined £307 and given three penalty points in March for speeding on the A40 in west London in August 2021.

He was fined £1,107 and ordered to pay a £442 victim surcharge and £90 in costs.
