'Taxpayer-funded staff are being used by MPs to mind children and pets, wait for shopping to be delivered and even dust their homes, a new report has revealed.
An inquiry into bullying and harassment in the House of Commons found MPs' staff face 'an unacceptable risk of bullying and harassment' with some having been the victim of unwelcome sexual advances.
The new report published by Gemma White QC has also raised questions about some of the tasks members of Parliament are asking their staff to perform.
Ms White said during the course of her investigation into the culture of abuse in the Commons that she had been 'provided with many examples' of employees being asked to do things not in their job descriptions.
The findings have raised questions about the use of public money with some MPs apparently using their taxpayer-funded staff to improve their private lives.
Ms White wrote in her report: 'I have been provided with many examples of tasks which contributors have been asked to carry out for their employer MPs which are plainly not Parliamentary work within their job descriptions.
'Recurring themes are looking after children and pets, carrying out domestic tasks at the Members’ homes, waiting for domestic deliveries, accompanying the Member on personal business, organising personal events for the Member and running personal errands for the Member.''
