MPs are calling for a former Sheffield MP to be stripped of his knighthood for his part in the cover up in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster.
Sir Irvine Patnick, former Tory MP for Sheffield Hallam, was revealed to be one of the sources behind the Sun's controversial coverage, which blamed Liverpool fans for the tragedy in which 96 people died.
Sir Irvine has said he was "deeply and sincerely sorry", insisting he was given "wholly inaccurate" information by police officers.
Former Lord Mayor of Liverpool Steve Rotheram, now MP for Liverpool Walton, said the forfeiture committee should examine the honour.
Mr Rotheram said that according to parliamentary records, Sir Irvine first questioned the conduct of Liverpool fans in the Commons two days after the tragedy, asking the home secretary to "examine the the part that alcohol played in the disaster."
He said: "It was clear even then that there were those in this place seeking to shift the blame onto the fans for the disaster."
Knowsley MP George Howarth said: "I think if there was ever a job for the forfeiture committee, surely the scrapping of Patnick's knighthood would be it."
