[Liberal-Democrat MP, who works closely with Penny Mellor on MSBP issues.]

Justice for Families is chaired by John Hemming MP, who, in June 2005, admitted having an affair with his personal assistant and researcher, Emily Cox, when Ms Cox became pregnant with his child. Mrs Hemming, with whom the libidinous MP has fathered three children, was said to be distressed but unsurprised at the news, telling the Birmingham newspapers that he had had as many as 26 affairs in 23 years. "I'm obviously distressed that he has been so unfaithful over the years and he has put me and the children in a very difficult position," said Mrs Hemmings.
