Tory MP Neil Parish is investigated for ‘watching porn in Commons chamber’

The Tiverton and Honiton MP had the Tory whip withdrawn on Friday.

Now he is waiting for the result of the investigation after a conversation with Tory Chief Whip Chris Heaton-Harris.

A spokeswoman for Tory Chief Whip Chris Heaton-Harris said: “Having spoken to the Chief Whip this afternoon, Neil Parish MP is reporting himself to the Standards Committee of the House of Commons.

“Mr Parish has been suspended from the Conservative Whip pending the outcome of that investigation.”

An investigation by the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS) was launched after the allegations surfaced during a meeting of Tory MPs on Tuesday.

Mr Parish is the chair of the Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee.

He has represented the Tiverton and Honiton constituency in Devon since 2019.
