The accusation by MP Anna Turley came as six MPs from the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee visited the firm’s factory for an on-the-spot inspection.
After the visit, the MPs headed for a private room to discuss their impressions when they said a recording device was found.
The Press Association reported Turley, MP for Redcar, saying:
“At the end of the meeting, we sat down to have a private conversation in a room by ourselves.
“A lady came in with some sandwiches, which was very kind. I saw her take too long to do it, she put it down and I saw her put a recording device on the floor.
“She left the room and I went over to pick up the device and there it was: a camera and a recording device for the conversation that we were having privately.
“I’m very disappointed.”
