Former Chief of the Defence Staff Lord Stirrup defended his role in the Ministry of Defence lobbying investigation, he told Sky News:
It's important to understand the context of this.
First of all this story is about lobbying, I've never lobbied for money and I don't lobby and as I have pointed out I am the recipient of quite a lot of lobbying and I'm struck by how ineffective it is.
So it's not the way you proceed.
The context of this particular situation as far as it pertained to me - I was asked if I would be, not a lobbyist, but if I would become a member of the strategic advisory board for a South Korean company.
And what we are talking about here potentially was technology that could save a lot of lives of soldiers.
