Tory MP Conor Burns has whip suspended following 'complaints about his behaviour' at party conference | The Sun

TORY MP Conor Burns has had the whip suspended following complaints about his behaviour at this week’s party conference.

The trade minister tells the Sun that “he will fully cooperate with the investigation and looks forward to clearing his name.”

Mr Burns, 50, is expected to be sacked as a minister and will face a Tory party probe.

He has been the MP for Bournemouth West since 2010 and was a close ally of Boris Johnson during his premiership.

In 2020 he resigned as a trade minister after a parliamentary watchdog ruled he used his position to "intimidate a member of the public".

The Conservatives' annual conference took place in Birmingham from last Sunday to this Wednesday.

Today's are the latest allegations to rock the Conservative Party following a string of scandals.

Earlier this year the Tories stripped the whip from Chris Pincher after the Sun revealed allegations he drunkenly groped two men in a club.

Another anonymous Tory MP is currently on bail by the Met Police for allegations of rape.

Separately Tory MP Neil Parish resigned after the Sun revealed he had watched porn in the House of Commons.
