Jacob Rees-Mogg expresses regret at his decision to recline on the front bench while listening to a key Brexit debate, noting it was a "distraction".
He came under fire for how he held himself on the front bench, adopting a position he previously took on several occasions while a backbencher.
Mr Rees-Mogg said he was "simply sitting comfortably", adding: "I do accept it was a mistake."
