The Lords Committee for Privileges ruling on the case of Lady Uddin…

“We recommend that the House sanction Lady Uddin by requiring her to make a personal statement of apology to the House and thereafter suspending her from the service of the House for three years or until she has repaid the sum of £125,349.10 wrongly claimed, whichever is the later. Her apology must be unconditional, and agreed in advance with the Chairman of the Sub-Committee, to be sufficient. We consider that the suspension should be renewed in the next Parliament if Lady Uddin has not repaid the money by the end of the current Parliament, but that can only be a matter for the next Parliament.”
