Charities are refusing donations from the men-only Presidents Club Charity Dinner, at London's Dorchester Hotel.

Speaking on BBC Question Time, Derby North MP Chris Williamson, said: "There are very rich, powerful people in this country who still think they have a sense of entitlement to abuse and exploit people at their whim.

"What kind of country do we want when a great institution like Great Ormond Street is reliant on charity from these types of individuals".

Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday she was "appalled" by the reports that women had been groped.

The Presidents Club also said it was closing and would no longer hold events.

Guard waves off an East Midlands Train

The official HS2 Ltd publication show trains between the cities will have to stop at Toton before reversing out, which involves the driver having to change cab

Toton is due to become a regional hub on the high speed network.

Chris Williamson, the MP for Derby North, said: "We can't have a situation where we invest all this money in the railway station in Derby, billions of pounds on HS2, to actually see an inferior service.

"That really would be a crackpot proposition."

Pauline Latham, the MP for Mid Derbyshire, said the page continued to "pursue" Ms Solloway (pictured above) over the collapse of Compass, as she is the wife of a former director.

Ms Latham told Parliament: "The page continues to pursue Amanda Solloway, but never mentions any other directors or their wives."

In response, Commons Speaker John Bercow said it was beyond his power to have a Facebook page removed but encouraged Ms Latham to raise the concerns with the social media company.

BBC Local Live

An MP for Derby North has come up with a plan to "save Derby" and stop public services, like libraries having to be handed to volunteers.

Derby Central Library

Chris Williamson said the council should hold a referendum and seek permission to raise council tax to unprecedented levels.

The vast majority of homes would see no change but homes rated as Band D, E, F, G or H would see increases ranging from 20% to 100%.

You might have caught a discussion on BBC Radio 4's PM programme this week on what to do about £4bn of repairs needed to renovate the Palace of Westminster.

Labour MP for Derby North, Chris Williamson, has tweeted a rather radical solution - moving Parliament from London to the Midlands or the North.

The Grade I listed building and Unesco World Heritage site, which mostly dates back to the mid 1800s, faces irreversible damage without significant restoration.

A joint committee of MPs and peers, which was set up to specifically look at the options, advised the most cost-effective solution was for everyone to move out while the works were completed.

Pauline Latham, Conservative MP for Mid Derbyshire, is against the move. She said: "Once we leave we'll never go back."

Derby MP suggests women-only train carriages

Samantha Fisher

BBC News Online

Derby North MP Chris Williamson has suggested women-only train carriages could combat the rise in sexual offences on public transport.

Shadow fire minister Mr Williamson said it would be "worth consulting" on the policy after such crimes doubled in the past five years.

He tweeted an article containing figures from the British Transport Police, showing 1,448 sexual offences on trains had been reported in 2016/17, compared with 650 incidents in 2012/13.

However, Labour colleagues have criticised the move as "normalising attacks".

The policy was first suggested by party leader Jeremy Corbyn during his leadership election campaign in 2015.

"It was pooh-poohed [when Mr Corbyn suggested it], but these statistics seem to indicate there is some merit in examining that," Mr Williamson told PoliticsHome.

BBC Radio Derby

Derby North MP Chris Williamson has called on the judge heading the Grenfell Tower inquiry to stand down.

Mr Williamson, who was reappointed as shadow fire service minister on Monday, said Sir Martin Moore-Bick did not have the "confidence of the community" in Kensington.

But retired Court of Appeal judge Sir Martin has said he understands the "desire of local people for justice."
