Pressed on whether he had ever inhaled cannabis, Mr Hague said: "No, I never had any myself but I know quite a few people who have." He said he had seen people's lives ruined with drugs at university.

He said he occasionally enjoyed a glass of wine or beer and the last time he had "a little bit too much" to drink was at his wedding in December.

On his wife's choice of outfits, Mr Hague said: "Yes, she is quite a stunner, a wonderful lady."

On whether they were planning to start a family, he said: "Maybe some time in the future, certainly not immediately.

"She has got her own career, just as I have got mine and I think we settle into married life before we embark on a family."
