Liberal Democrat party leader Nick Clegg has apparently rebuked Birmingham MP John Hemming who named Ryan Giggs as the footballer at the centre of the privacy injunction row.
Mr Hemming (Lib Dem, Birmingham Yardley) used Parliamentary privilege to name the Manchester United star as the Premier League player who took out an injunction over his relationship with former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.
Speaking at Deputy Prime Minister's questions in the Commons, Mr Clegg appeared to criticise his own backbencher.
He told MPs: "I don't think anyone should be above the rule of law and if we don't like the law we should act as legislators to change the law and not flout it."
Mr Clegg was responding to Labour's Stella Creasy (Walthamstow) who asked him: "Could the Deputy Prime Minister update the House on discussions he has had with Government and party colleagues on the circumstances in which Parliamentarians should be above the rule of law?"
