12.29pm: Mark Reckless, a Conservative, goes next.
Q: May wrote to the committee yesterday. She said she met you on average every month betweeen November and June. But after June she met you only once. Why was that?
Clark says he does not know. He was keen to meet May to tell her about the pilot.
Q: Are you saying Whiteman’s actions were inappropriate?
Clark says he built up a reputation over 40 years. Over two days that has been largely “destroyed”. That was mainly because of May, he says.
