Solicitors for the Conservative peer Lord McAlpine has responded to the comments made by the Speaker's wife over their legal battle:
I am disappointed that the press has become aware of the proceedings between Lord McAlpine and Sally Bercow.
However, I am still hopeful that we will be able to reach a sensible agreement to settle this matter with the second set of solicitors, instructed by Mrs Bercow, without the need to proceed to a trial.
We have no further comment to make, and do not intend to deal with this issue through the media.
