“Andrew is not re-contesting the next election for the LNP, we’ll find a new candidate and that will be up to the preselectors,” Deputy Liberal leader Josh Frydenberg said.

It comes after two prominent female Liberal MPs said Dr Laming should resign from federal politics in a joint appearance on the ABC’s Insiders program this morning.

During their appearance, Katie Allen and Sarah Henderson said Dr Laming’s alleged behaviour was unacceptable.

In a statement late last night Dr Laming said he would take medical leave and use the time to complete counselling services he had previously committed to.
