Since then, there have been fewer than ten complaints of bullying, harassment or sexual misconduct made against members of the House of Lords under the Code. To protect the confidentiality of those reporting complaints, and in line with Parliament’s publication policy for statistics under the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme, the exact numbers are only provided where they are ten or more.</p> more like this

The contract through which Ms Ellenbogen has been engaged defines a full day as constituting 8 hours, and provides that time engaged in report writing will be payable at the agreed hourly rate.</p><p> </p><p>While the costs of the inquiry are being paid by the House of Lords, the overall cost will depend on a number of variable factors outside the Administration’s control, in particular the volume of evidence received.</p>
