'Bullying' Labour MP Liam Byrne suspended from Commons after 'abusing his position'


Parliament’s Independent Expert Panel concluded that Mr Byrne had “abused his position” after “ostracising” a member of his office staff between March and July 2020. The MP for Birmingham Hodge was found to have cut all personal contact with the former assistant after an office row.

The senior Labour MP is set to be suspended from the Commons for two days.

A former cabinet minister, Mr Byrne has apologised for his conduct against the former staff member, David Barker.

The MP said he was “profoundly sorry” and had said sorry.

Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, Kathryn Stone, upheld a single allegation of bullying against Mr Byrne following a complaint made under Parliament’s Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS).
