Liberal MP Andrew Laming steps down from ALL parliamentary roles after harassment scandal

Queensland MP Andrew Laming has decided not to contest the next federal election after being embroiled in distasteful social media behaviour against women.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said after speaking to the prime minister on Saturday Mr Laming has decided not to stand again in his seat of Bowman as a member of the LNP party.

“His behaviour has been absolutely unacceptable,” Mr Frydenberg told reporters in Melbourne on Sunday.

Asked whether Mr Laming should stand down immediately, the treasurer said: “No.”

“He continues to serve in his constituents in the parliament.”
