A Conservative MP arrested over allegations of rape will not be suspended from the party while police investigate.

A spokesperson for the Conservative whips’ office said: “These are serious allegations and it is right that they are investigated fully. The whip has not been suspended.

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

It comes after shadow safeguarding minister Jess Phillips said it was “shocking” the party had not decided to withdraw the whip.
