“Please be advised the office of the health ombudsman is aware of the concerns raised and is managing the situation,” the email said. 

Earlier today, Queensland Police confirmed it would not be pursuing Mr Laming any further over allegations he took lewd photos of a woman as she worked.

Pressure continues to mount on the LNP to expel Mr Laming from the party, following a string of revelations which include internet trolling and alleged sexual harassment.

Crystal White made a formal complaint to police on Tuesday over a photograph she claimed was taken by Dr Laming while she was filling a fridge at a Brisbane landscaping business in 2019.

Police said in a statement that a number of people had been interviewed regarding the photo and “… there is no evidence to indicate a criminal offence”.

Mr Laming will return to Parliament in May, but not before completing a compulsory 30 days of empathy training.

Popular opinion is certainly swinging away from Mr Laming, with a petition circulating online calling for his axing - with more than 35,000 signatures.
