Lord Lester of Herne Hill was hanged from the Liberal Democrats this year pursuing the accusation, which he has mentioned as “completely untrue”. A party representative said Lord Lester had made “the right decision”.

Last month a report on the advantages and conduct committee lodged a complaint of sexual molestation against the lord, accepted in 2017 November. Originally, the report suggested a halt until 2022. The complaint demanded that Lord Lester “had sexually harassed the complainant, had offered her a corrupt inducement to have sexual relations with her and had warned her of unspecified consequences if she did not accept his offer”.

Lord Lester refused all the accusations, claiming that he had “ produced evidence which clearly demonstrated that what I was said to have done 12 years ago did not happen”. Pursuing a debate in the last month, peers registered to send the case back to the committee to take a glance it again.

A Liberal Democrat representative greeted the peer’s quitting.

Lord Lester has made the right decision in retiring from the House of Lords. The leadership of the Liberal Democrats supported the original report from the Privileges Committee that had recommended his suspension from the House. The leadership of the Liberal Democrats supported the original report from the Privileges Committee that had recommended his suspension from the House. We hope that Lord Lester’s decision now draws a line under this situation.
