The Liberal Democrats have suspended the party membership of MP and Councillor Mike Hancock after receiving a Portsmouth City Council report into allegations of sexual impropriety:
– Liberal Democrat spokesperson
The Liberal Democrats have this afternoon, for the first time, had sight of a Portsmouth City Council report by Nigel Pascoe QC into allegations of sexual impropriety by Mike Hancock.
Mike Hancock resigned as a Liberal Democrat MP last year in order to contest allegations of sexual impropriety in a High Court civil action.
Given Nigel Pascoe QC’s conclusions in his report, we have immediately suspended Mike Hancock’s membership of the party.
