Conduct Committee - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (20 Apr 2021)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...to act decisively when one of us fails to meet the standards expected of us in our conduct and behaviour. We cannot always wait for the worst to happen before doing the right thing and hope that a defence of “we would if we could, but we can’t” will stand up to any form of scrutiny.
