Dating a former prostitute

In a statement, Lord Sewel said he had "terminated (his) membership" of the House of Lords, which he entered in 1996 as a Labour life peer."The question of whether my behaviour breached the code of conduct is important, but essentially technical," he added."The bigger questions are whether my behaviour is compatible with membership of the House of Lords and whether my continued membership would damage and undermine public confidence in the House of Lords."I believe the answer to both these questions means that I can best serve the House by leaving it."The House of Lords code of conduct contains a clause on "personal honour", which stipulates that "members cannot rely simply on their own personal sense of what is honourable - they are required to act in accordance with the standards expected by the House as a whole."Lord Sewel was suspended from the Labour party after the scandal broke on the 's front page and had already left his position as deputy speaker.
A standards investigation has been launched into his behaviour and the footage was passed to Scotland Yard, who launched a drugs probe.
