Partying MPs face strict new rules about their behaviour after cleaners complained of finding used condoms and vomit in their Westminster offices

Partying MPs face strict new rules about their behaviour after cleaners complained of finding used condoms and vomit in their Westminster offices.

Disgusted cleaners are sick of being forced to clear up after partying members and staff, it has been reported.

Commons authorities are now considering introducing a “service agreement” about the appropriate use of work spaces in the Houses of Parliament, according to the Sunday Times.

“It’s the type of behaviour you would expect from students enjoying freshers’ week, not MPs and their staff,” a source told the Sunday Times, “but cleaners are being confronted with vomit and used condoms in offices used by MPs and their staff".

"It should be made clear that the cleaners are not there to clear up after their debauchery and this is not an appropriate use of their office space.”

Following the Westminster sex scandal action was taken to curb the subsidised drinking culture in Parliament which included closing the Sports and Social bar after Alice Bailey, the former manager said she was pestered for sex by MPs, including one who followed her out and groped her.

The bar closed in December following a fight between two male parliamentary staffers but reopened as wine bar The Woolsack with reduced opening hours.

Last year Andrea Leadsom , leader of the House of Commons has overseen the introduction of parliament's independent grievance policy to deal with complaints of misconduct.

A phone line has been set up for people to report any breach of the new behavior code.
