Disgraced peer told cough up - or go to court
LORD Hanningfield has been asked by County Hall to repay wrongly-claimed expenses - or face another appearance in court.
Essex County Council has written to its former leader demanding he repays any expenditure occurred for personal use.
Now members of the council’s audit committee are being asked to consider launching a civil claim through the courts if the disgraced peer, real name Paul White, does not cough up.
The seven-strong committee meets on Monday to debate the report.
