The complaint alleged that Lord Redesdale breached the Code of Conduct by not registering certain interests in the Register of Lords' Interests (in breach of paragraph 10(a) of the Code) and by registering certain other interests more than one month after those interests came about (in breach of paragraph 13). The Commissioner considered nine allegations of non-registration and eight allegations of late registration. He upheld seven of the allegations of nonregistration and six of the allegations of late registration. In respect of those findings Lord Redesdale admitted to the Commissioner that he had been in breach; he has corrected the Register so far as it can be. In addition, Lord Redesdale drew the Commissioner's attention to a further interest which he had discovered he had neglected to register. It seems to us clear from the Commissioner's report that he found no evidence of a deliberate attempt by Lord Redesdale to avoid registering interests; that at least some of the breaches appeared to the Commissioner qminor and fairly technicalq. In these circumstances, the Committee are disposed to accept Lord Redesdale's offer to the Commissioner to apologise to the House.I attach for ease of reference a copy of the Code of Conduct for Members of the House of Lords and Guide to the Code of Conduct ... The claim that I failed to declare directorships of City of London College (CLC) International Limited is correct. ... The carbon management Qatar Company was set up to undertake a piece of work for the Government of Qatar as part of the Climate Change meeting in Doha.
