Third formal complaint made against suspended Labour MP facing sexual harassment allegations | Politics News

A third formal complaint has been made against the former Labour MP Geraint Davies who was suspended over allegations of inappropriate behaviour, Sky News understands.

Mr Davies was suspended by the party last week after a number of accusations surfaced in the media. He has denied the claims.

Two formal complaints were made by women over the next two days, but Sky News now understands a third has been submitted.

It comes as Sir Keir Starmer told reporters he was “determined to tackle” sexual harassment within Labour.

Speaking before the news broke, the party header said: “I’m obviously concerned about any allegations of this nature, whether that’s in the Labour Party, in parliament or anywhere across the country and [we’re] determined to tackle them.

“That’s why we’ve changed our processes to hopefully give people the confidence to come forward.

“The most important thing I can say is that to anybody who has concerns or allegations or information, I want them to come forward, I want them to feel confident to come forward, and if they’re able to do so they’ll be supported and we’ll get to the bottom of this.”
