The Lib Dem peer Lord Oakeshott has told ITV News he is sure he never discussed the issue of Chris Huhne's speeding points with Vicky Pryce:
– Lord Oakeshott
Vicky must have been under great pressure but I am sure she never raised a question of points with me.
Vince Cable and his wife Rachel have say they have "no recollection" of discussing the issue of points with Vicky Pryce.
Vince and Rachel have no recollection of the issue of points being raised with them over the course of dinner with Vicky Price on 28 January 2011.
They have consulted their personal records which confirm that the issue first came to their attention in May 2011 when the story broke in the press.
– Assistant Chief Constable Gary Beautridge from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate
The conviction of Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce has been achieved through the thorough and steadfast investigation conducted by officers and specialist staff at Essex and Kent Police. Perverting the course of justice is a serious offence.
We hope this conviction serves as a timely reminder to motorists who try and avoid driving bans by ‘giving’ their points to others. This practice is not only unlawful, but has life changing consequences for those who get caught flouting the rules.
Judge Mr Justice Sweeney granted Vicky Pryce bail until sentencing, a date for which has not been set, when he will also sentence her former husband Chris Huhne.
He told the economist, as he had told Huhne, to be under no illusion of what sentence to expect.
"Obviously Ms Pryce was present when I indicated to Mr Huhne the inevitable consequences of a conviction for an offence of this sort.
"She must be under no illusions that my granting of bail indicates any watering down of that provisional approach."
He thanked the jury for discharging their task "assiduously" in a case which could not have been easy.
Disgraced MP Chris Huhne's ex-wife has been convicted of perverting the course of justice by taking his speeding points a decade ago.
Vicky Pryce, 60, of Crescent Grove, Clapham, south London, was found guilty by a jury of seven men and five women today after a retrial at Southwark Crown Court.
Former energy secretary Huhne pleaded guilty last month to perverting the course of justice by passing his points to Pryce in 2003, ending his political career. Both now face jail.
