Baroness Trumpington tops Lloyd George claims to fame

Baroness Trumpington has topped fellow Lords' claims to fame after one of them said their father had met Lloyd George.

The veteran Tory peer prompted laughter as she responded in the Lords: "Is this minister aware that I not only knew Lloyd George, but I was his Land Girl."

The exchanges came after reference was made to the 150th anniversary of the birth of the World War One PM.

Government spokesman Lord Wallace of Saltaire had told peers that his father had met the famous Liberal leader.
