We have been informed by the Metropolitan Police that Lord Rennard will not face any charges. This is further to interviews in June when he gave his full account.
Lord Rennard said upon hearing the news:-
“I am not surprised by the police decision that after a full investigation into the complaints made against me I will face no charges.
The last eight months have been harrowing and deeply unpleasant for me, my wife Ann, my family and friends.
I am enormously thankful for the unfailing support I have received from people across the political spectrum but especially those within the Liberal Democrats who have stood by me throughout.
My life’s work has been to support good people and good causes. I hope now to be able to continue doing that.”
