Mark Field has been suspended as a government minister after violently grabbing a Greenpeace protester by the neck.
The Foreign Office minister was widely criticised after video emerged of the incident at a City of London dinner on Thursday night.
It showed him jumping out of his seat to block the activist, grabbing her around the back of her neck, pushing her up against a column and then marching her out of the room.
The incident took place at the black tie Mansion House Dinner on Thursday night, where Philip Hammond, the chancellor, was giving a speech.
