Theresa May is to meet other party leaders to agree a plan of action to tackle sexual abuse and harassment in parliament.

The Prime Minister has said MPs across Westminster remain concerned about the allegations which have been splashed across media outlets in the last few days.

To plot a plan to combat this, she invited all party leaders to talk about setting up a procedure to deal with grievances.

The Prime Minister told the House of Commons she had made her move to arrange a “transparent” process for all employees to come forward.

Jeremy Corbyn has said he is happy to come to the table with his counterparts.

The Prime Minister’s announcement comes after she orders an inquiry into allegations regarding her deputy, Damian Green.

A spokesperson for Downing Street said Mrs May had requested Sir Jeremy Heywood to work out the facts and compile a report on the allegations.
