Clegg: 'I have not spoken' to Lord Rennard

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he has not spoken to Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard following allegations of sexual harassment.

He stated, however, that if Lord Rennard "apologises" and "changes his behaviour", the matter would then be "concluded".

He noted that if an apology was not received, then "further steps" would need to be taken.

Mr Clegg also explained that he had a "duty of care" to the women affected.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 20 January 2014.
