Tory frontbencher caught watching porn in House of Commons as chief whip investigates

The Independent says a Conservative MP who watched allegedly pornography on his phone in the House of Commons has been reported to a parliamentary watchdog.

A female minister who said she was sat next to the unnamed colleague at the time told colleagues about the incident at a meeting of Tory MPs in Westminster on Tuesday night.

The office of chief Tory whip Chris Heaton-Harris vowed that “action will be taken” over the claim, which comes as misogyny in politics is under heightened scrutiny.

Mr Heaton-Harris’s spokesperson said the claim would now be referred to parliament’s Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS), the watchdog set up in the wake of the Me Too movement.
