When the Commissioner conducts an investigation into a member, she produces a report of her findings. Her reports are published via one of two processes.
The first process applies if the member is found in breach of the Code of Conduct and the case is unsuitable for remedial action. The Commissioner’s report, including her recommended sanction, is considered by the Conduct Committee. The Conduct Committee then hears any appeal against the finding of breach or the recommended sanction (or both). The Committee reports to the House and appends to its report the report of the Commissioner. It is only when the Conduct Committee has published its report that the Commissioner’s report becomes public. Until then information on her investigations remains confidential.
The Commissioner’s reports and the reports of the Conduct Committee are available on the webpages of the Conduct Committee.
The second process applies if the member is cleared of breaching the Code, or if the breach is minor and the Commissioner has agreed remedial action with the member. At the end of her investigation the Commissioner’s report is published only on this webpage (please see below). Until then information on her investigation remains confidential.
Before May 2019, reports on cases where remedial action was unsuitable were considered first by the Sub-Committee on Lords’ Conduct and then by the Committee for Privileges and Conduct. The reports from that process are available on the webpages of the Committee for Privileges and Conduct.
