The Met Police confirmed they responded to reports in Strangers Bar at 11pm on Tuesday night.

The MP is one of 12 Scottish Tories elected to the Commons in 2017.

The incident comes despite a concerted bid by Commons authorities to introduce a stricter regime at late-night bars in Westminster after the sex abuse scandal.

In late November 2017, the popular Sports and Social Bar was shut when Commons employee hit a colleague with a glass.

Previously, former barmaid Alice Bailey told The Sun how she was regularly pestered for sex by MPs during her four years there.

Last October partying MPs were rapped after cleaners found used condoms and vomit in their Westminster offices.

Mr Thomson, 31, was one of 12 Scottish Tories elected to the Commons in 2017. A passionate Brexiteer, he was the first Tory elected to represent Aberdeen South since 1992.

He was criticised last year after posing for photos at Saddam Hussein’s old military parade ground on a trip to Baghdad.

Scotland Yard said today: "Police were called to a bar within the Palace of Westminster following a report of sexual touching.

"Officers attended and spoke to the parties involved – three men in their 20s and 30s. However, no formal allegations were made to the officers and no arrests were made."

A spokesman for the Scottish Tories said: “We are aware of reports of an incident last night and the matter is being looked into. We have no further comment to make at this stage.”

Ross Thomson was unavailable for comment.
