MP wants ruling on conduct claims 'as quickly as possible'

Today Programme

BBC Radio 4

The MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham Daniel Kawczynski says he hope an investigation into allegations about his behaviour is concluded "as quickly as possible".

He's been referred to the party's internal disciplinary committee following media reports that he tried to set up a date between a visitor and a Commons researcher.

Mr Kawczynski has already said there was no impropriety, saying he asked the woman to have coffee with a friend, she said no and that was the end of it.

A third party has referred this incident, it is being investigated and I'm very much hoping that there will be some sort of adjudication on this as quickly as possible because clearly it's a very, very difficult time for those who've been caught up in this."

Election campaign abuse was tough, says MP

Shrewsbury & Atcham Conservative MP Daniel Kawczynski says the abuse he received during this year's general election campaign was "miles worse" than previous years.

The Conservative politician saw his posters torn down, others were defaced with swastikas and he says he was hounded by anti-hunt demonstrators.

A BBC survey of MPs found the overwhelming majority who responded received some form of abuse on the campaign trail.

I think some people feel that they can almost say anything, no matter how libelous or how hateful it is on social media."

Kawczynski calls for unity ahead of Brexit talks

Daniel Kawczynski is back as the Shrewsbury MP and says his priorities will be getting a new relief road for the town and seeing the review of Shropshire's hospitals through to a conclusion.

But he also said that Brexit was the most pressing issue for the next government and he argued British voters would want all political parties to get together ahead of the negotiations.

Mr Kawczynski admitted the Conservative campaign could have gone a lot better, but said Theresa May had been "very straight" with the electorate and was a "very experienced politician".

We do need a period of stability and I think all the political parties now have to act in a sensible way in the House of Commons with the negotiations over Brexit starting in 11 days time."

Shrewsbury: Gains for Labour's 'exhilarated' candidate

Labour's Dr Laura Davies added around 7,000 votes in Shrewsbury, compared with 2015 and cut the Conservative majority by a third.

She said she was "exhilarated" by the result there and the results around the country.

She can now get back to her 15-month old baby, who she points out, has spent half his life on the campaign trail.
