Labour and the Lib Dems called for Rishi Sunak to suspend the top Cabinet Minister during the investigation.
And Dave Penman of the FDA civil service union said: “Given the volume of complaints, if this was a civil servant – at any level – there’d be a legitimate question of whether they should be suspended pending the investigation.”
But the PM’s spokesman said that “it’s right there is an independent process, that the investigator looks into these claims thoroughly before coming to a view.”
Mr Raab denies bullying and insists he has “behaved professionally at all times”.
He called the investigation into himself last month when accusations first emerged.
