The Scottish Conservatives are disputing reports the Aberdeen South MP was escorted from a Westminster bar by police for alleged ‘sexual touching’.
Officers were called to speak to Ross Thomson and two other men.
Concerns had been raised over the 31-year-old’s behaviour in Strangers’ Bar on Tuesday night.
No formal complaint was made, and no one was arrested.
A spokesman for the Conservative Party said the MP left the bar of his own accord.
He added: “We are aware of reports of an incident last night and the matter is being looked into.
“We have no further comment to make at this time.”
Mr Thomson has also been approached for comment.
Elected to Westminster in 2017, the former North-east MSP and Aberdeen City councillor has become a prominent Brexiteer.
He was embroiled in controversy last year – after widely-condemned social media posts on a trip to Iraq, in which he spoke of ‘channeling his inner dictator’ while visiting sites connected with Saddam Hussein.
