UK parliamentary staff face unwanted sexual advances, report says

Staff working for lawmakers in Britain's lower house of parliament face an unacceptable risk of sexual harassment, bullying and abuse, which has been hidden because they fear reprisals, according to an official report on Thursday. Employees working in the House of Commons were subjected to harassment ranging from "very serious" sexual assault to sexist comments and lawmakers sharing explicit details of their own sex lives, the report said.
