The Tory MP for Croydon Central, Andrew Pelling, who is also a member of the Greater London Assembly, has been suspended from the Tory party, following his arrest last week on suspicion of assaulting his wife.

This is the Tory statement as reported by the BBC:

“Following a meeting today with the Chief Whip, Andrew Pelling’s case has been referred to the Conservative Party’s Ethics and Integrity Committee. Until a conclusion is reached, he has been suspended from the Conservative Party Whip.”
