Tory MP allegedly caught watching ‘porn’ while sitting in House of Commons


A probe has been launched by the UK government’s chief whip into the reports that a Tory MP was seen watching porn on his mobile phone in the House of Commons chamber.

The revelations on Tuesday came after a group of female MPs met with chief whip Chris Heaton-Harris to file their complaints about incidents of sexism in parliament.

According to a report in The Mirror, one of the MPs claimed that she had caught a male Tory MP watching porn in the House of Commons while he was sitting next to her. The identities of the MPs in question have not been revealed yet.

The incident reportedly occurred last week during a meeting of Tory MPs. Similar claims have been made by one more female Tory MP who alleged that she also saw the same man watching pornographic material inside the Commons but failed to capture video evidence.
