Conservative Party statement following Mark Garnier allegations

As the Prime Minister has made clear, any reports of sexual harassment are deeply concerning and any unwanted sexual behaviour is completely unacceptable in any walk of life, including politics.

The Prime Minister is writing to the Speaker of the House of Commons calling for a new contractually binding grievance procedure to be set up for all MPs and their staff.

Today, as a result of allegations about a serving minister, the Prime Minister has also asked the Cabinet Office to conduct an immediate investigation to see whether those reported actions break the Ministerial Code.
