Boris Johnson News – Latest: Calls for Parliament overhaul as MP resigns amid porn scandal

Neil Parish resigns after admitting to watching pornography in the House of Commons

The Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, has called for “radical” reform of labor practices following a spate of offenses over bullying and sexual misconduct MPs.

Sir Lindsay called for urgent action and suggested staff should no longer be employed by the MPs they work for to address a range of “serious allegations”.

He considered moving to an outside agency that hired staff amid fears Parliament’s reputation had hit a new low.

It comes amid reports that more than 50 MPs are facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

The warning came after Tory MP Neil Parish resigned after admitting to seeing pornography in the House of Commons in what he described as a “moment of madness”.

The Tiverton and Honiton MP claimed he had looked at adult material twice, the first time when he stumbled on a porn website while looking for tractors online, but returned on purpose the second time.

He insisted he had no intention of alarming nearby female MPs as he checked his phone.
