Lord Hanningfield breaks Westminster silence
DISGRACED peer Lord Hanningfield has broken his silence in the House of Lords.
The former leader of Essex County Council spoke in a debate on the region’s railways.
It is the first time the peer, real name Paul White, has spoken in Parliament since his release from prison for fiddling his Westminster expenses in September 2011.
During his speech the lord, who is no longer affiliated to any political party, called for investment in improved signalling on the tracks, better and longer trains, and welcomed plans for a new station in north Chelmsford.
