A Conservative member of the House of Lords has stepped down from his party role following findings that he engaged in bullying and harassment of two individuals during an incident involving alcohol.

Lord Ranger, who previously advised Boris Johnson, is at risk of being prohibited from the House of Lords' bars after an inquiry into his behavior.

He has expressed regret for his actions and relinquished his party affiliations, which requires him to serve as an independent member of the House of Lords.

An announcement from the whip's office declared: "Lord Ranger has stepped down from his role as government whip and has issued an apology for his conduct, which violated the expected norms of the House and of Parliament."

"The panel has proposed a penalty that ought to be adhered to."

The Conduct Committee of the House of Lords has proposed a three-week suspension for Lord Ranger after an inquiry into his behavior at the Strangers' Bar in Parliament this past January.

The panel suggested that he should be prohibited from accessing the bars in the House of Lords for one year.

Further Discussion on Conservatives

Conservatives and Labour delineate their stances on taxation, leaving the final decision to an exhausted electorate.

Jeremy Hunt promises additional reductions in national insurance this fall, contingent on financial feasibility.

Starmer's strategy indicates Labour's concentration on the electoral race, though it appears Sunak missed the notice.

According to the committee's findings, Lord Ranger was "noticeably intoxicated" and uttered "several improper remarks" to a gathering of individuals.

He went back to the group and began behaving aggressively, yelling obscenities and accusing them of being "completely incompetent," while also violating their personal space.

Lord Ranger acted as the transportation advisor to Mr. Johnson during his tenure as Mayor of London and received a noble title as part of the former prime minister's resignation honors list.

He later expressed his apologies to those affected, stating that he did not remember the event but was "profoundly embarrassed by the accounts of my actions" and "saddened to learn that I caused you upset."

He made no excuses for his actions but described the incident as a completely atypical explosion, occurring during a period when his family's health problems had severely impacted his own physical and mental well-being.

Initially, the standards commissioner for the House of Lords suggested a one-week suspension for Lord Ranger. However, after evaluating the gravity of his actions, the Conduct Committee decided to impose a harsher penalty, deeming his behavior to be "particularly serious

The committee stated, "The aggressive actions of Lord Ranger extended over a significant period, involving two distinct events that occurred about an hour apart. Alcohol played a key role, resulting in both harassment and bullying allegations being upheld."

The panel also acknowledged the effect on the individuals who lodged the complaint, with one stating that the event had caused her to become "more cautious in her dealings with others" and had resulted in difficulties with her sleep.

In addition to a three-week suspension, the committee also proposed that Lord Ranger be prohibited from accessing the House of Lords' bars for a year to emphasize the chamber's condemnation of behavior linked to alcohol. They further suggested that the House of Commons authorities implement a comparable prohibition in their facilities.

The proposed penalties are pending approval from colleagues, with a vote on the recommendations anticipated in early June.
