The revelation is the latest incident to follow allegations of sexual harassment with a 'spreadsheet of shame' naming six Cabinet ministers accused of various levels of sexual impropriety circulating in Westminster.
Mr Fallon has admitted he was the MP responsible despite Ms Hartley-Brewer previously refusing to name the man involved.
A close friend of Sir Michael, a married father of two, said: ‘Julia’s a good friend of Michael’s. She made it clear it was unwelcome and he rightly apologised 15 years ago.’ A hit list of 36 sitting Conservative MPs branded 'sex pests' including two serving cabinet members has emerged in a secret 'spreadsheet of shame' leaked at Westminster.
One was said to be 'handsy with women', another 'paid a woman to be quiet', while a former Tory minister was said to have propositioned his secretary by asking her to 'come and feel the length of my c***'. should speak up now and provide the evidence to ensure any necessary action is taken.
The move came after Mrs May called for a new independent helpline to deal with complaints.
Commons Speaker John Bercow also called for change in Parliament amid what he described as ‘disturbing’ allegations.
As the scandal threatened to engulf Westminster: Mrs May was urged to investigate a secret dossier naming 36 Tory MPs as sex pests.
New proposals, including an independent ‘grievance procedure’ and training for MPs on how to treat their staff, would be brought forward ‘within days’. One female Tory MP called for ‘perspective’, while a female Tory peer warned of creating an atmosphere that might ‘encourage’ false allegations.
A spokesman for the Defence Secretary said he had apologised when the incident happened 15 years ago – and that both he and Miss Hartley-Brewer considered the matter closed.
The incident is believed to have happened at a Tory Party conference.
Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has apologised for repeatedly touching a radio host's knee until she threatened to 'punch him in the face'.
Mr Fallon has been revealed as the MP who made the gesture to journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer during a Conservative party conference in 2002.
