Mr. Raab emphasized that he will remain in his positions during the probe.
He tweeted, “I eagerly anticipate resolving these allegations and continuing to serve as Deputy Prime Minister, Justice Secretary, and Lord Chancellor.”
The decision follows days of questioning and claims regarding his behavior toward junior colleagues.
Mr. Raab wrote in a letter to the Prime Minister, “When you took No. 10 Downing Street on October 25, you correctly asserted that “this government will have integrity, professionalism, and responsibility at all levels.”
“I am pleased to hold this as my personal article of faith”
“I have just been informed that two formal complaints have been lodged against me from my time as foreign secretary and my initial tenure as Justice Secretary, which concluded in September of this year.
“I am writing to request that you immediately conduct an independent investigation into the allegations. I will totally cooperate and respect any decision you make.
