Dawn Butler response to naming of Philip Green

Dawn Butler MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, commenting on Philip Green being named in the House of Lords as the businessman whose injunction prevented the Telegraph publishing allegations about him, said:

“While much of the focus in the coming days will be on this man and his alleged actions, let us also pay tribute to survivors of sexual abuse and harassment, who are too often silenced and cannot command an army of lawyers to fight their corner.

“NDAs should never be used to suppress allegations of criminal behaviour. If the current law doesn’t protect the voices of survivors, the next Labour government will legislate to do so.”
