Brown: Peer claims 'very serious'

Gordon Brown has said he is "determined to get to the bottom" of allegations that four Labour peers were ready to take cash to change legislation.

The Lib Dems say they are planning to make a complaint to the police over the Sunday Times claims.

The newspaper said peers had offered to help make amendments for up to 120,000. All four peers, who spoke to undercover reporters, have denied any wrongdoing.
