Labour peer Lord Hain has again used parliamentary privilege to reveal allegations of “hundreds of grievances cases” raised against Sir Philip Green.
Speaking in the House of Lords, Hain revealed further details on the allegations of sexual harassment and verbal abuse made against Green, which he initially revealed last year by reading the account of one alleged victim.
Hain claimed the victim “plead[ed]” him to name Green under parliamentary privilege and said “hundreds of grievance cases were raised with HR” regarding Green’s behaviour, which ranged from slapping employee’s bottoms to grabbing their thighs and breasts.
The same person told Hain that Green shouted at staff who objected to his inappropriate behaviour to “go to psychologists”.
