Lord Rennard row left in 'no-man's land', Goldsworthy claims

Lib Dem peer Lord Rennard could face a new investigation into his conduct.

He is due to return to the Lords on Monday but party leader Nick Clegg has said he should not until he apologises to women who claim he sexually harassed them, allegations the peer denies.

Party officials now say members are complaining he is bringing the party into disrepute by not apologising.

One of the women who made accusations says the current position is unfair to all sides.

Welsh activist Alison Goldsworthy, deputy chair of the Liberal Democrats' federal executive, told BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement: "I actually think that the no-man's land that we find ourselves in at the minute is absurd and unfair on everybody involved in this process."

Lord Rennard's legal adviser, Lord Alex Carlile, told programme presenter Vaughan Roderick: "What we cannot have is a legal process in which a judge as it were says 'I find you not guilty but don't do it again'."
