The truth will out – Philip Green exposed in Parliament
Philip Green named in Parliament as person at centre of #MeToo scandal
Sir Philip Green, pictured above, has been named in Parliament as the businessman at the centre of Britain’s #MeToo scandal.
Lord Peter Hain, the former Leader of the House of Commons, revealed the name under parliamentary privilege, saying it was his ‘duty’.
Speaking in the House of Lords he said:
Someone intimately involved in the case of a powerful businessman using non-disclosure agreements and substantial payments to conceal the truth about serious and repeated sexual harassment, racist abuse and bullying which is compulsively continuing I feel it’s my duty under parliamentary privilege to name Philip Green as the individual in question given that the media have been subject to an injunction preventing publication of the full details of this story which is clearly in the public interest.
The Daily Telegraph revealed on Tuesday that it had spent the past eight months investigating allegations of bullying, intimidation and sexual harassment made against the businessman, but was prevented from revealing details of the non-disclosure deals by Sir Terence Etherton, the Master of the Rolls, the second most senior judge in England and Wales.
