Peer finds Mirror clocking in story 'very offensive'

A peer who has defended regularly "clocking in" to claim a £300 daily allowance said he found The Daily Mirror's report on him "very offensive" and that he was a "hardworking" member of the House of Lords.

He said: "I haven't done anything wrong at all. I've made certain that I've not broken any rules, so I haven't done anything wrong at all.

"I've tried to be a hardworking peer again...and I find the Mirror very offensive, quite honestly, in following me around when I wasn't very well."

There is no suggestion he broke any rules.
