Lucy Allan, the Conservative MP for Telford, has deleted a post on her web-site about bullying allegations shortly after she posted it earlier today.
Allan has been under pressure over bullying allegations from her former staff after a recording was made of the MP. In her, now deleted post, Allan criticised a staff member for contacting the Conservative Party about her actions saying:
“I do not know why Arianne contacted the Conservative Party and the media about the allegations”.
Allan made a statement to the London Evening Standard last week saying:
“Arianne Plumbly was dismissed from her employment with Lucy Allan, MP in Telford, after four months’ employment, for gross misconduct following misuse of the Parliamentary email system, persistent unauthorised absenteeism, refusal to follow a reasonable instruction and rudeness to residents”.
The Conservative Party has said that the matter will be fully investigated.
