Chris Pincher seeking ‘professional medical support’ following groping allegations

Politics

Chris Pincher, who lost the Conservative whip after being accused of groping two men, said he is seeking “professional medical support” as he hopes to return to his duties as an MP “as soon as possible”.

In a statement by the Tamworth MP, Mr Pincher said he “respected” the prime minister’s decision to suspend the whip, adding he would “cooperate fully” with an inquiry into his behaviour.

“I respect the prime minister’s decision to suspend the whip whilst an inquiry is under way, and I will cooperate fully with it,” he added.

“As I told the prime minister, I drank far too much on Wednesday night, embarrassing myself and others and I am truly sorry for the upset I caused.

“The stresses of the last few days, coming on top of those over the last several months, have made me accept that I will benefit from professional medical support.

“I am in the process of seeking that now, and I hope to be able to return to my constituency duties as soon as possible.”
