Conservative MP Andrew Mitchell said he "did not believe" allegations against Deputy Commons Speaker Nigel Evans.
Mr Evans was arrested on suspicion of raping one man and sexually assaulting another between July 2009 and March 2013. He said the allegations are "completely false".
Mr Mitchell told BBC Radio 4's Today programme:
Conservative MP Andrew Brigden, who was accused of sexual assault two years ago only for police to drop their inquiries six days later, has supported Deputy Commons' Speaker Nigel Evans today.
Mr Bridgden, MP for North West Leicestershire, said: "the law of England says it is innocent until proven guilty".
