HL Deb 19 May 2004 vol 661 c777
Baroness Golding

My Lords, with permission, I should like to make a personal Statement.

I regret to inform the House that the people involved in the incident earlier today at Prime Minister's Questions were there at my invitation. I am, of course, deeply distressed by this. As your Lordships would expect, I am giving all the information I have to the authorities. I have also seen the Speaker of the House of Commons and apologised to him unreservedly and, through him, to all Members of the House of Commons. My Lords, I should also like to apologise to everyone in this House.
