Oxfam's shameful handling of sexual abuse claims in HaitiMinisters could cut off funding for Oxfam if it cannot account for the way it handled claims of sexual misconduct by aid workers, the international development secretary has warned.

Penny Mordaunt will meet the charity on Monday to hear more about claims staff used prostitutes in Haiti in 2011.

She said Oxfam had failed in its "moral leadership" over the "scandal".

Meanwhile, Oxfam has announced new measures for the prevention and handling of sexual abuse cases.

Ms Mordaunt told the BBC's Andrew Marr she had written to other organisations funded by Department for International Development (DfID) urging them to report any safeguarding issues, past or present, and pledged they would all be followed up.
