The MP withdrew his whip before investigating the allegations about his behavior.
Allegations against Somerton և Fromm MP David Warberton are being investigated by the Parliamentary Independent Complaints Scheme (ICGS).
This scheme is the first of its kind in any parliament in the world and aims to address “misconduct” in the parliamentary workplace.
The Telegraph reported that the ICGS had received a report that the MP had misbehaved.
This follows the investigation of the Sunday Times newspaper.
Mr Warberton, who is sitting on the backs, is reportedly denying any wrongdoing.
The Telegraph quotes the deputy’s words. “I have a huge amount of protection, but unfortunately, the way everything works means that it does not appear first.
“I have not heard anything from the Independent Complaints Scheme. I’m sorry, I can not comment anymore. “
A Whips Office spokesman confirmed that the Conservative whip had been removed from Mr Warberton while an investigation was under way.
Mr. Warberton was first elected in 2015 by a majority of 20,268 votes or 53% of the vote. According to the deputy’s website, this was the biggest constituency deviation of the Conservative Party with 18.3%.
He was re-elected in 2017 և 2019 with 22,906 և 19,213 votes, respectively.
He is the current chair of the Party Parliamentary Group on Music (APPG) and a former member of the Commons European Scrutining Committee.
