LONDON - Two members of Britain's House of Lords have been suspended for violating the chamber's code of conduct.
Lord Truscott and Lord Taylor of Blackburn were suspended Wednesday after a vote by their peers. They will be suspended until the end of the parliamentary session, in about six months.
An investigation into the peers' behaviour was launched after a national newspaper reported the men were willing to amend bills in return for cash.
The men denied the allegations.
An investigation by a House of Lords committee found they breached a code of conduct which says peers must "always act on their personal honour."
