Claire Perry on Commons bullying claims and Bercow behaviour

A Conservative minister who has clashed with the Speaker on the culture in the House of Commons and how MPs and staff are treated.

Claire Perry was asked about her previous calls for John Bercow to consider his behaviour, after a report published on Monday by Dame Laura Cox QC, found a culture of “deference, subservience, acquiescence and silence”.

The business minister said: “You get put in your place often with a rather acerbic comment. It’s not respectful to MPs, it must be horrendous to be a staffer working in some of these offices.”
