Labour comments on Rob Roberts’ planned return to Parliament on Thursday

Thangam Debbonaire MP, Labour’s Shadow Leader of the Commons, commenting on Rob Roberts’ planned return to Parliament on Thursday, said:

 

“Most people found to have sexually harassed their staff would expect to lose their job.

 

“But because of a procedural anomaly and the Conservatives’ refusal to act, Rob Roberts’ constituents are being denied the chance to decide whether or not they want him as their MP.

 

“Labour has proposed a change to close this loophole but the Government is inexplicably blocking it. Yet again, they seem to think it is one rule for them and another for everyone else.”
