Labour MP Suspended Over ‘Serious Allegations Of Unacceptable Behaviour’

Labour MP Geraint Davies has been “administratively suspended” from the party pending an investigation into reports of “incredibly serious allegations of completely unacceptable behaviour.”

Allegations regarding the 63-year-old came to light in a report by Politico published on Thursday.


Sky News has seen evidence that the Labour Party Whips’ office was made aware of allegations many months ago but did not take action. The party has been approached for comment.

My understanding is that no formal complaint has yet been made, and it’s therefore difficult to move things on.”

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “These are incredibly serious allegations of completely unacceptable behaviour.


“We strongly encourage anyone with a complaint to come forward to the Labour Party’s investigation.

Any complainant will have access to an independent support service who provides confidential and independent guidance and advice from external experts throughout the process.”

The woman later submitted a formal complaint to the party on Thursday afternoon.


Mr Davies currently serves as a member of the House of Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, and served as its interim chair when Neil Parish stood aside last year.

According to the Labour Party’s procedures, “if a member or a person involved in our activities experiences any behaviour that they feel amounts to sexual harassment towards themselves or anyone else, they are strongly encouraged to report it to us as soon as possible using the dedicated sexual harassment complaints portal.”
