Chair comments on ComRes survey on sexual harassment in Parliament

28 February 2018

The Women and Equalities Committee Chair comments on the ComRes survey for Young Women's Trust on sexual harassment in Parliament.

Sexual harassment in the workplace 'affecting thousands of people'

Chair of the Women and Equalites Committee, Maria Miller MP, said:

"The work we have carried out into this issue reveals that sexual harassment is a serious problem in many workplaces, affecting thousands of people.

We hope to identify solutions with our new inquiry.

There needs to be a culture change in order to keep women safe as well as providing effective legal remedies.

We are also going to look at whether non-disclosure agreements are being abused by legal experts and employers to cover up wrongdoing.

We continue to welcome written evidence submissions on how best to tackle these problems."
