Lord Ahmed's solicitors Wilford Smith have said there will be no comment issued on the Labour peer's suspension from the party until they have received a full unedited transcript of the comments the peer is alleged to have made.
The Times, which has published video footage which it claims shows Lord Ahmed making anti-Jewish remarks during a television interview in Pakistan, earlier said a transcript had been sent to Lord Ahmed's solicitor, at the peer's request.
