Patrick Grady, SNP MP for Glasgow North became the party’s chief whip in the House of Commons in June 2017. In a statement this morning, the SNP said a “formal complaint” had been lodged with the party against Mr Grady concerning the incident. 

It comes after the party staffer detailed two incidents and claimed the complaints were being swept under the carpet by SNP bosses. 

The staffer claimed the first incident occurred at the Water Poet in Shoreditch in 2016 which allegedly involved Mr Grady.
