Thanks to the Guido Fawkes blog for pointing out that Lord Hoyle is up in front of a Lords disciplinary committee today.
The Guardian first broke the story that money changed hands between Lord Hoyle (formerly Doug Hoyle, a Labour whip) and Michael Wood, a former RAF officer now working for arms companies. A meeting subsequently took place between Lord Drayson – defence minister – and Mr Wood, although accounts differ as to how this was arranged. That was in June 2005
Unfortunately today’s meeting in the Lords (of the interests sub-committee of the privileges committee) is behind closed doors. No doubt we’ll hear more in a few weeks.
