Some House of Commons staffers are subjected to horrendous sexual abuse that involved groping, pawing and stroking, a damning report into bullying by MPs has revealed.
Gemma White QC said there was a “significant problem” about the way some MPs treated those who worked for them.
Staff face an “unacceptable risk” of bullying and harassment – including sexual harassment – her independent report has said.
She said the House of Commons authorities had been too slow to act in response to previous reports into the issue.
