Hugo Swire MP, Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Works of Art at the House of Commons, invited colleagues to the unveiling of the portrait of Ken Clarke by James Lloyd.
This was commissioned by Hugo Swire's Committee to join portraits of other parliamentarians such as Tony Benn and William Hague which are on display in Portcullis House.

"This portrait captures the Ken Clarke we all know."

Speaking before he unveiled his portrait, Ken Clarke said that James Lloyd was the only person who had persuaded him to keep still for two hours at a time - but that hadn't prevented him from speaking.
