A member of Parliament in the United Kingdom, Gavin Williamson has resigned as a government minister after allegations of bullying, saying he aims to clear himself of “any wrongdoing”.

The MP had been accused of sending abusive messages to a fellow Tory MP last month and of bullying a senior civil servant as defence secretary.

Sir Gavin said he “refuted” how his conduct had been characterized, adding that the claims were becoming a “distraction” from the government’s “good work”.

In his resignation letter, he said he was leaving government with “real sadness” but offered Prime Minister Rishi Sunak his “full and total support from the backbenches”.

He later tweeted he would not be taking any severance pay, adding that the money should go towards the government’s priorities.
