Cabinet minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan says she was pinned against wall by male MP

Apr 22,2024 10:00 am

A female cabinet minister has said she was once " pinned up against a wall" by a male MP, amid renewed scrutiny about harassment in Parliament.

International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan said she had been subjected to misogyny and " wandering hands" on numerous occasions.

Her comments come after a Tory MP was accused earlier This Week of watching porn on his phone in The Commons .

It has reignited debates about the working environment for female MPs.

Tory party managers have referred the porn allegations to Parliament's conduct watchdog, which could launch an independent probe into the claims.

Speaking on LBC radio, Ms Trevelyan said she had " witnessed and been at the sharp end of misogyny from some colleagues many times over".

Asked what form this had taken, she replied: " We might describe it as wandering hands, if you like.

" We might describe it as, you know, A Number of years ago being pinned up against a wall by a male MP - who is now no longer in The House [of Commons] I'm pleased to Say - declaring that I must want him because he was a powerful man.

" These sorts of things, these power abuses that a very small minority, thank goodness, of male colleagues show is completely unacceptable. "

'God's gift to women'

She added that she had been subjected to " wandering hands" on " probably half a dozen" occasions.

" A couple were repeat Offenders - They 've got The Message now, " she added.

Speaking on Sky News , she told male colleagues to " keep your hands in your pockets and behave as you would if you had your daughter in the room".

She Said the vast majority of her male colleagues are " delightful" But " there are a few for whom too much drink, or indeed a sort of, a view that somehow being elected makes them, you know, God's gift to women".

'Zero Tolerance '

Also speaking on Friday, Conservative MP Caroline Dinenage said she had previously experienced inappropriate behaviour in Parliament.

Speaking to BBC Radio Solent, She Said the conduct had made her feel " very uncomfortable, in terms of what was being said" and described a lack of respect for her personal space.

She added that behaviour in Westminster was " considerably better now" than when she became an MP in 2010, But The System for reporting complaints was " by no means good enough".

And another female Tory MP, former cabinet minister Karen Bradley , said The Commons had " pussyfooted around" the issue of Bad Behaviour for too long and " Zero Tolerance is needed".

In a broadcast to be aired later, she told BBC Radio 4 's Today in Parliament: " There is a real risk here that a very small number of Rotten Apples are going to pollute everything we do. "

Porn accusations

The allegation that a Tory MP watched pornography in The Commons was made at a meeting on Tuesday night.

Chris Heaton-Harris - the government's Chief Whip - looked into The Matter But has now referred it to Parliament's Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS).

This could lead to a probe by an external Investigator - But under the ICGS process, this can only happen if A Witness lodges a formal complaint.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has called for the Tory party to " take action now" against the unnamed MP.

And senior Tory MP Caroline Nokes has said she is " disappointed" her party has not suspended the MP from The Conservative group in Parliament.

She the decision to refer the allegations to the ICGS amounted to " Kicking It into long grass".
