UK MP caught playing Candy Crush in Parl, apologises

Conservative British MP Nigel Mills, who was found playing a popular puzzle game on his tablet during a hearing in Parliament, on Monday apologised “unreservedly” for his behaviour and promised not to repeat it.

Pictures were published in the Sun newspaper of the 40- year-old MP playing the game Candy Crush Saga on his tablet during a Work and Pensions Committee session on pensions in the House of Commons.

Mills, a committee member, had initially admitted playing and told the newspaper he would try not do it again. But he later apologised “unreservedly” for his behaviour.

The MP for Amber Valley was said to have played Candy Crush Saga over a period of two-and-a-half hours.

In a statement, Mills said: “I apologise unreservedly for my behaviour at the committee meeting and realise it fell short of what is expected of a member of parliament. I guarantee it will not happen again.”

Mills had initially told the paper that he “probably had a game or two” but said he was “fully engaged” in the hearing and would “try not to do it” again.
