Labour peer Peter Hain has been cleared of breaking parliamentary rules when he named the retail boss Sir Philip Green as the businessman accused of inappropriate behaviour towards staff.
Sir Philip Green's legal action against the Daily Telegraph has been formally brought to an end by a High Court judge, after it was announced last week that the retail tycoon was dropping the case.
Sir Philip Green has said he will lodge a formal complaint against Lord Peter Hain, who used Parliamentary privilege to name him in the House of Lords.
Lord Peter Hain named Philip Green as the businessman being accused of harassment. But how does parliamentary privilege allow MPs to override the law?
The former executive editor of the News of the World has said that granting Sir Philip Green an injunction "accelerated the likelihood" of his name being revealed publicly.
Sir Philip Green has been named in Parliament as the businessman who fought for an injunction over allegations of "sexual harassment and racial abuse".
Activist Kate Smurthwaite has said that the use of injunctions “is only protecting the rich and powerful”, after a company boss was granted an injunction amid allegations of sexual harassment and racial abuse.
Theresa May has pledged to improve regulation around so-called gagging clauses after a newspaper was stopped from publishing allegations about a businessman.
