Britain’s biggest business organisation forced to ban all parties following series of sex scandals | The Sun

A SERIES of sex scandals has forced Britain’s biggest business organisation to pull the plug on all its parties.

Allegations of sexual assault and rape have forced the Confederation of British Industry, which represents 190,000 businesses, to act.

It has even scrubbed next month’s annual dinner, which would have been attended by the Governor of the Bank of England Andrew Bailey.

And this week more than a dozen women alleged sexual misconduct by senior CBI staff.
