Schedule of 634 days when Labour peer attended House of Lords despite ‘dementia’

By Alex Varley-Winter | 12 May 2015

Labour peer Lord Janner attended the House of Lords on 634 days since giving power of attorney to two of his children over his health

Exaro published the details of Janner’s attendance record, together with the allowances claimed since the former Labour MP signed the lasting power of attorney in April 2009.

“I remember all of this so well, and I am delighted to share my memories with the House today”
– Lord Janner, in House of Lords in 2012

It shows that Janner was an active member of the House of Lords until December 2013, the month when police raided his home as part of their investigation into him over allegations of child sex abuse.

During the period, he often spoke in the House of Lords.

For example, in December 2012, during a debate about the Ugandan Asian community in the UK, Janner said: “I remember all of this so well, and I am delighted to share my memories with the House today and to speak of my experience with the unique and wonderful Ugandan Asian community from 1970, when I had just become an MP for part of Leicester.”

Janner took leave of absence from the House of Lords in October 2014. And a week before the announcement that he would not be prosecuted on 22 counts of sexually abusing nine boys, the House of Lords received a letter signed by Janner to request an extension to his leave of absence.

The details below of Janner’s attendance and allowance claims have been drawn from his expenses claims lodged with the House of Lords.

Exaro also publishes today Lord Janner’s voting record at the House of Lords since he gave power of attorney to his children.
