A Tory MP and former minister who was arrested on suspicion of rape will not be suspended from the party while investigations are ongoing.

The MP who has not been named was arrested by the Metropolitan Police on Saturday on suspicion of rape and has since been bailed pending further investigation.

The claims have been made by an ex-parliamentary worker.

The Sunday Times has reported that the MP assaulted her and forced her to have sex with him and left her so traumatised she had to go to the hospital.

A spokesperson on behalf of the Conservative Party Whips Office said no decision on whether to suspend the MP or not would be made until the police investigation had finished.

“These are serious allegations and it is right that they are investigated fully, the spokesperson said.

“The Whip has not been suspended.

“This decision will be reviewed once the police investigation has been concluded.”
