THE SNP is facing calls to withdraw the party whip from two MPs after it was reported that sexual harassment complaints have been upheld against them.

Former Westminster chief whip Patrick Grady and housing spokesperson Patricia Gibson had been investigated by an independent Westminster’s ethics watchdog.

The Sunday Times reported complaints against both MPs under the new Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme have been upheld and the pair asked to respond.

Asked if there had been a cover-up, the SNP also refused to say.

Instead, the party issued a one-line statement, saying: “It would not be legally appropriate to comment while the independent parliamentary process is ongoing.”
