House of Lords reform: Lord Strathclyde and Ben Stoneham

A former leader of the House of Lords said he was misquoted on his resignation about the "coalition breaking down" but admitted there was a "substantial disagreement about reform".

Lord Strathclyde debated whether parties would continue with the "same old story" and whether there would ever be a reform of the Upper House, after he said the House of Commons came up with a "historic fudge" last time.

He spoke to Andrew Neil and Liberal Democrat whip Lord Stoneham.
