Minister on Met Police investigation: ‘Standards must be raised’

Minister of state, Kit Malthouse, made a statement to the House of Commons following an investigation into “bullying and misogyny in Charing Cross Police Station”. 

Malthouse told the House: “Misogynistic, racist and homophobic behaviour became commonplace between officers”. 

The Conservative MP said that he hoped that the investigations taking place, including one by the Home Office, would end this “toxic culture”.
