MP defends parliamentary privilege

Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming has defended parliamentary privilege after the Lord Chief Justice criticised MPs who "flout" court orders.

Mr Hemming said that the proceedings in parliament "should not be questioned outside parliament".

Top judges undertook a year-long inquiry into the use of injunctions and super-injunctions.
