Naomi Ellenbogen published a report that cites ‘toxic behaviours unworthy of any institution’. Her House of Lords Commission report did not name any alleged offenders but found “toxic behaviours” and “systemic cultural issues”.
The report comes after a series of harassment cases in the House of Commons. It called for sweeping change to the rules that apply to both members of the House of Lords as well as their personal staff, and processes to ensure that complaints were taken seriously in future.
While staff members said that most members of the House were not problematic, they also described a “hard core” of offenders, and estimated that as many as 20 per cent of the members behaved in an “inappropriate and high-handed” way.
