“At the end of the meeting, they both stood up and official, to my amazement, put his hand on my breast,” she told the magazine.

Ms Goodwin said she left Downing Street, in a state of “high dudgeon”.

“I wasn’t traumatized, I was cross. But the day after he had become an anecdote, The Day I Was groped In Number 10,” he said.

However, he said the revelations of alleged abuse at Westminster, and Hollywood had made her question whether she was wrong not to make a formal complaint.

Hollywood has been shaken by the accusations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and others.

In Westminster, the more Conservative and Labour MPs are being investigated for the causes of sexual misconduct.

Ms Goodwin said: “Now, in the light of all the really shocking stories about the behavior of abusive men of power from Hollywood to Westminster, I wonder if my Keep Calm and Carry on philosophy, inherited from my parents, is that correct?

“The answer is, I’m not sure.”

A spokesman for Downing Street said: “Allegations like this are taken very seriously.

“The Cabinet Office, in any formal complaint, it should be done.”
