The findings prompted a number of sources to share their stories with the paper, on the condition of anonymity.One said: ‘I have seen an MP openly snorting cocaine at a party. There were journalists present and I warned them that what they were doing was extremely dangerous and they could be exposed but they seemed to get off on the power trip.’

‘Some are household names, some are ambitious young MPs and officials, but all of them risk throwing away their careers. They think they are untouchable, protected by their friends in the bubble. It’s shocking but also sad. Lots of them need help.’Drug use has led some staffers to lose their jobs while FOI requests have previously revealed that two drug dealers were arrested and 13 people were detained for drugs possession on or around the estate in the last year.

Sir Lindsay called the allegations ‘deeply disturbing’ and promised swift action, including raising them ‘as a priority’ with the Metropolitan Police next week.Sources have said they’ve seen MPs and staff openly taking drugs (Picture: PA)He told theIndependent

: ‘While parliament provides extensive support services for any staff or members who may need help with drug misuse – and I would encourage anyone struggling with such issues to take up such help – for those who choose to flout the law and bring the institution into disrepute the sanctions are serious.’

Meanwhile, the chair of the administration committee, Conservative MP Charles Walker, has said it might be time to deploy sniffer dogs who can detect the presence of drugs.He said: ‘The House of Commons has a long history of using sniffer dogs to detect explosives. It may be that we now need to broaden the range of sniffer dogs…to include those which can detect drugs.’ headtopics.com

They don’t look like cocaine users - they (bj & pp) are both chubby. Cocaine tends to make ppl lose their appetite… They should check Peppa Pig world too. Same day Priti Patel launches a war on drugs, Lindsay Hoyle announces 90% of Westminster toilets had traces of class A drugs. If only the duplicity of this Govt was funny. How simple would it be to introduce regular drug testing?

Stop....I saw a kid no cocaine...but image of jab....marcel francisci was French connection and 700 air cocaine plane...stop... Bring the sniffer dogs into HouseofCommons, undoubtedly they'll head-nose first towards Johnson, Gove, Patel, Truss, Barclay, Frost, Dorries, Coffey, Raab, Shapps, Eustice, Lewis and Moggs; they're all off their heads on something! Johnson's coke-head cabinet cabinetofficeuk⬇️

Is anyone surprised. That would make more of a headline if they found someone who said ' Never, they would not do anything like that ' As if any sort of police action will happen. It would seem Westminster is above the law and can quite literally get away with Murder! Will anything happen. I'm guessing bugger all will happen

Are we not having great border security pritipatel ? Emily_F_Smith Cocaine turns people into utter assholes. So to track down the culprits all we need to do is... ahh, maybe not.
