Here's the letter
The decision made by the Conservative Party to restore the whip to two MPs who had been suspended over allegations of sexual misconduct was made behind closed doors and without a proper explanation.
This sudden decision empowered these MPs to take part in the vote of confidence in the Prime Minister, and welcomed them back into the Conservative Party.
It sends a message to the public that politicians care more about protecting their own power than doing the right thing by victims of sexual misconduct. It comes after a raft of shocking allegations about sexual misconduct by politicians of all parties.
As Leader of the House of Commons, you are responsible for business in the house and you work closely with the government’s Chief Whip. You have said you are “committed to changing the culture” of Parliament. We call on you to investigate and publicly explain this decision.
