The MP for Penrith and the Border has been giving his recollections of Baroness Thatcher.
Conservative member Rory Stewart was among the congregation at the former Prime Minister's funeral in St Paul's Cathedral.
He described the service to Helen Ford.
The funeral of Baroness Thatcher divided opinion in many areas, the former Prime Minister remaining as divisive in death as she was in life.
A debate about Mrs Thatcher's legacy that was meant to take place in the Scottish Parliament today was postponed after complaints over the insensitive timing of it.
John Bevir reports:
Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale MP, David Mundell, has paid his last respects to Margaret Thatcher at her funeral today.
He attended the ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral alongside her friends, family, colleagues and international dignitaries.
Mr Mundell expressed his thanks to Baroness Thatcher for the support she offered to Sir Hector Munro following the Lockerbie Air Disaster, and for the support she offered to the locals during her visit to the town in the aftermath of the bombing.
Dumfries and Galloway Council have lowered the flag to half mast, in recognition of Margaret Thatcher's funeral.
As the hearse arrived at St Clement Danes, the coffin was taken into the church, ready to be transferred to a gun carriage to be taken to St Paul's.
The flags outside the Scottish Parliament building are flying at half mast this morning to mark the funeral of Margaret Thatcher.
Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond is in Westminster to attend the ceremony.
The Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, will also be among more than 2,000 guests at St Paul's Cathedral.
A debate on Margaret Thatcher's legacy which was due to be held at Holyrood today, was rescheduled for tomorrow after the Scottish Conservatives branded the timing "provocative and insensitive".
The Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter told Daybreak that the Queen "can't win either way" whether she decided to go to Margaret Thatcher's funeral or not.
He said: She's criticised because she's going, in some quarters and she would have been highly criticised if she hadn't have gone.
"She's going because she wants to go because she wants to pay respects to somebody who was a Prime Minister for 11 years, some pretty turbulent years, we remember the Falklands war, we remember the industrial unrest, but we came out of it all.
"She's going there along with 2,000 other people to pay her respects."
