Dominic Raab below strain as one other formal ‘bullying’ grievance is launched towards him | Politics | Information

2022-11-25 12:22:00

An extra grievance has been introduced towards Dominic Raab, taking the overall variety of complaints towards the Deputy Prime Minister to a few. The grievance got here from the Division for Exiting the European Union, when he was Brexit Secretary in 2018. The Prime Minister’s official spokeswoman mentioned Mr Sunak “has now requested the investigator so as to add an extra grievance”.

She mentioned it was obtained by the Cupboard Workplace on November 23th. 

The most recent grievance comes along with two pre-existing complaints, one from his time within the Overseas Workplace and one other from the Ministry of Justice. 

However the Prime Minister’s spokesperson confirmed that Mr Sunak nonetheless has “full confidence” in Mr Raab.

She added: “There’s now an unbiased investigation that’s ongoing.

“It’s being led by somebody with intensive expertise on this space. We’re not going to preempt or prejudge that course of.”

Senior lawyer Adam Tolley KC is main the investigation into the complaints.

Final week, Mr Raab requested Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to launch an investigation into his personal conduct after the primary allegations about his behaviour in direction of workers emerged.

Downing Avenue mentioned the report shall be printed in a “well timed means”.

Whereas the investigation is unbiased, any last judgement on whether or not Mr Raab was in breach of the ministerial code will stay with Mr Sunak.

Mr Raab has denied any allegations of bullying, insisting he “behaved professionally always”.

The Justice Secretary and Deputy PM mentioned he seems to be ahead to coping with the complaints “transparently fairly than coping with nameless feedback within the media”.

Labour deputy chief Angela Rayner warned the investigation should not be a “whitewash”, calling on Mr Sunak to increase its scope to cowl different allegations about Mr Raab’s behaviour.

She mentioned: “This Conservative authorities has a troubling monitor file of brushing critical misconduct below the carpet. Their refusal to behave on findings towards [former home secretary] Priti Patel beforehand led their former ethics chief to give up in disgust.

“A brief stop-gap investigator, appointed in a panic, with an absurdly slender remit will not be an answer to coping with the flood of allegations of ministerial misconduct now requiring investigation.”
