Asked if Leicester East MP Keith Vaz Vaz should quit as chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, committee member Chuka Umunna told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme:
I think we need to hear from Keith first and we are going to be meeting with him tomorrow.
I don't want to say more than that, other than to say when you see things like this plastered across the front pages ... you just feel terribly for his family. I've met his children and I can't imagine what the family are going through.
I think we need to hear from him first and then we can decide with him the best way to move forward.
Mr Umunna said the committee members would need to "collectively come to a view" on Mr Vaz's position when they meet on Tuesday.
Leicester East MP Keith Vaz is facing a possible investigation over reports he paid two male escorts for their services.Read the full story ›
An inquiry into the way prostitution is treated in law led by Keith Vaz should be abandoned following allegations he paid for the services of male escorts, a campaign group has said.
Nordic Model Now (NMN) said the claims, made in the Sunday Mirror, amounted to a conflict of interest.
NMN advocates decriminalising prostitutes themselves and making buying sex a criminal offence.
The group has previously voiced opposition to an interim report by the Home Affairs Select Committee, which is leading the Prostitution Inquiry, over recommendations solicitation and sharing of premises by sex workers should be legalised.
NMN said the inquiry should now be disbanded and reformed with members obliged to declare any history of purchasing sex, as well as a mandatory 50 per cent of members being female.
Mr Vaz has called the report by the Sunday Mirror "deeply troubling".
