If the allegations are true, then Phillip Green should be stripped of his knighthood

Ian Lavery MP, Labour Party Chair, responding to the latest allegations about Sir Phillip Green, said “If the allegations are true, then Phillip Green should be stripped of his knighthood. The public rightly expect high standards from public figures and they’re not getting it. The honours system is clearly flawed and the Prime Minister should take steps to remove honours from people who bring their office into disrepute.

“NDAs should never be used to suppress allegations of criminal behaviour so the next Labour government will review the statute book to ensure that the law protects the voices of survivors.”
