MPs bullying allegations

The Prime Minister has said she is concerned about allegations of bullying of Parliamentary staff by MPs – including claims about House of Commons Speaker John Bercow – that were reported last night by the BBC.

There have been calls from Downing Street and across Westminster for the complaints to be investigated. MPs weren’t sitting in the House of Commons today but his spokesman said that “The Speaker completely and utterly refutes the allegation”.
