House of Lords warning to Nick Clegg from Lib Dem peer

30 July 2012 Last updated at 14:32 BST

Coalition plans to reform the House of Lords will be "another constitutional humiliation" for Nick Clegg, one of his own peers has warned.

The Earl of Glasgow, who has a hereditary position in the Lords, warned the Liberal Democrat leader about the "dangerous path" and this was no time for internal fights.

He told Becky Milligan on Radio Four's The World at One that he doubted it would be approved and Mr Clegg should "back down a bit".
