Sir Christopher Chope, 71, a conservative lawmaker, objected to the bill to make the non-consensual practice called upskirting illegal Friday as it was being read in the House of Commons, TIME reported.

This comes after Conservative MP Sir Christopher Chope was hit with major backlash for single-handedly blocked the law on Friday.

Mrs May said: "Upskirting is an invasion of privacy which leaves victims feeling degraded and distressed".

The stunt is believed to be a protest over his objection to a Private Members Bill backed by Theresa May on Friday, which means that the bill must now be introduced during Government time.

"By making upskirting a specific offense, we are sending a clear message that this behavior will not be tolerated, and that perpetrators will be properly punished", Lucy Frazer, the British justice minister, said in a statement.

It followed a campaign by freelance writer Gina Martin after police declined to prosecute a man accused of taking pictures up her skirt at a music festival in London last summer.

Cabinet ministers were among those who publicly criticised the move by Chope, whose Commons office door was adorned with a string of knickers on Monday.

The entrance to the 71-year-old MP's Commons office was been decorated with women's trousers in an apparent protest by Commons staff against his actions, the BBC reported.

Four pairs of knickers, bound together with a pink ribbon, were draped across the doorway to Sir Christopher Chope's office in the Norman Shaw North building on the parliamentary estate.

The PM expressed her "disappointment" that the private member's Bill, which would have made upskirting a criminal offence in its own right, was delayed in the Commons.

Campaigners have hailed Government plans to ban upskirting as a "great day" for all "right-thinking individuals".

The Commons leader, Andrea Leadsom, had told colleagues "the measure is one the government supports and has received extensive support both within and outside parliament".

"It is an invasive, offensive act and we need to take action against it", she added.

He said: "The Government supported today's Bill on "up-skirting".

"I feel a bit sore about being scapegoated over this", he said.

"The government has been hijacking time that is rightfully that of backbenchers", he said. "The suggestion that I am some kind of pervert is a complete travesty of the truth", he told the Bournemouth Echo.
