    A Labour MP facing disciplinary action has branded the probe into his conduct a “farce and a disgrace”.

    Ian Austin’s lawyers have accused Labour’s general secretary of failing to “observe the most rudimentary principles of natural justice”.

    Labour has dropped a similar investigation into MP Margaret Hodge.
