Vince Cable: PM right to call for reforms to Parliament grievance procedures

by Steve Beasant on 29 October, 2017

Vince Cable has backed Theresa May’s calls for new grievance procedures in Parliament following allegations of sexual harassment of staff by MPs.

The Prime Minister set out proposed reforms in a letter to Commons Speaker John Bercow, copying in the other party leaders.

Liberal Dmocrat Leader Vince Cable said:

“The Prime Minister is right to be calling for these changes.

“Parliament clearly needs improved procedures to respond to allegations of harassment.

“The Liberal Democrats have introduced similar changes since a review in 2013, which has proved a positive step.”
