Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said he wants the investigations into the allegations against Lord Rennard to be carried out "as quickly as possible".
"The key thing, not least for the women involved, is that the investigations get their work done as quickly as possible," he said.
The Liberal Democrat leader, who was visiting the Aston Martin car factory in Warwickshire today, went on: "The important thing is that the two investigations I announced last week are allowed to get on with their work, and that the police investigation is allowed to get on with its work."
He added: "It's crucial we get to the bottom of the truth and do that as soon as possible."
Nobody thinks Nick is the kind of guy who would defend a 'boy's club', but that does not necessarily mean he has handled the issue well.
One of the women who made allegations against Lord Rennard told ITV News that Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg shifted his position on the matter.
Questions for the Lib Dems mount, centred on what senior members knew about allegations surrounding former chief exec Lord Rennard and when.
