Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt has condemned the behaviour of some Oxfam staff members as a "complete betrayal", as she warned the charity the "scandal" had put its relationship with the Government at risk.
Oxfam has defended its handling of a sex workers scandal after allegations that staff hired prostitutes during their work in Haiti following the devastating 2010 quake.
"The behaviour of some members of Oxfam staff uncovered in Haiti in 2011 was totally unacceptable, contrary to our values and the high standards we expect of our staff", a spokeswoman said in a statement.
Mordaunt, speaking to the BBC, said she was meeting Oxfam representatives on Monday.
Oxfam's boss say he is "deeply ashamed" over accusations its staff used prostitutes in Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 natural disaster.
But, he did admit that whilst he was "not informed" about the allegations of sexual misconduct levelled at Oxfam, DFID "did report the matter to various regulators and to the Department of International Development" they "did not specify the nature of the allegations or the nature of the misdemeanours that had taken place".
Ms Mordaunt said the charity had also "categorically" stated to the DfID that beneficiaries were not involved in the misconduct and no harm was done.
Mordaunt spoke Sunday - three days after a Times of London investigation accused Oxfam's then-director in Haiti, along with other workers, of running an illegal makeshift brothel after a 2010 quake devastated the country.
Goldring apologised yesterday and said he was 'deeply ashamed of Oxfam's behaviour [in Haiti]'.
