ControversyBanned From Parliament’s Bars After Drunken Abuse
In May 2024, the House of Lords Conduct Committee discovered that Kulveer Ranger had bullied and harassed two women members of parliamentary staff while drunk. The incident happened in the House of Commons Strangers' Bar in January 2024. Ranger apologised to the two complainants and claimed that his wife and children’s health issues had “taken a significant toll” on his physical and mental health at that time. He resigned the government whip after the committee recommended he be suspended from the House of Lords for three weeks and denied access to bars in the House of Lords for 12 months. [1]The Guardian
