Sky News has contacted Ms Rees’ office for comment.

In a statement to The Guardian, she said: “There has been a complaint against me with the Labor Party which is under investigation and I am therefore administratively suspended until the process is over.

“I do not know the details of the complaint but I fully cooperate with the investigation.”

There are now a total of 14 independent MPs in the Commons.
