The Liberal Democrats have agreed to cross party proposals which will see an independent grievance process, improved HR support, and the establishment of a cross-party working group to implement these changes.
Following the meeting Vince Cable, Leader of the Liberal Democrats said:
"These are the right first cross-party steps to address harassment and abuse in Westminster. There needs to be a robust, independent complaints system across Parliament that offers victims a safe, non-partisan procedure.”
Jo Swinson, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, added:
“Sexual harassment has sadly been a problem for far too long. We must now make sure these initial proposals are a positive catalyst for change.
“The cross-party talks today will hopefully mark the start of that change in Westminster.”
