From BBC - November 6, 2017

Westminster party leaders have agreed to introduce a new grievance procedure for staff to deal with misconduct allegations, Theresa May has said.

The prime minister said the measures, which will also include face-to-face human resources support, were an "important step forward".

They were backed by Labour's Jeremy Corbyn following cross-party talks.
